Integrated wind farm solutions

James Fisher Testing Services joins forces with other group companies to deliver an integrated solution to support the installation of four monitoring devices on an offshore wind farm.


The companies, James Fisher Testing Services, James Fisher Subsea, James Fisher Rumic and James Fisher Marine Services, were selected to provide a wide range of services for a major EPCI contractor to support the installation of four structural monitoring systems. The cross-group solution included the installation of monitoring equipment, provision of technicians, a confined space support team and vessel chartering. 

The monitoring system was installed between the grouted connection of the monopile and the transition piece to monitor relative displacement over three axis of movement that includes x, y and rotational.

The cables were routed up the structure, through the air tight deck to a data logger in the transition piece, which required a confined space support team to work with the technicians to safeguard against any emergencies and help the team access the installation work area.

The operation was mobilised with the help of a dedicated James Fisher charter vessel that provided the technicians with unrestricted control and access to the turbines, enabling the technicians to extend their working time on the asserts and realise cost efficiencies across the operation.
