A comprehensive variety of On-site services providing effective management of your offshore wind farm.

Effective on-site management is a growing concern for offshore wind farms. As farms age and early turbines end their warranty period, asset management becomes more important as wind farms have to develop their own maintenance plans. In addition, as farms go further offshore, operation and maintenance becomes more complicated, especially with the emergence of floating wind turbine technology. Any failure or major problem needs specialist technical support. However, fulfilling all the essential project management and engineering functions requires extensive engineering resources.

Construction completion to operations and maintenance
Our On-site wind farm management services are the ideal way to augment your project. Through our personalized service, we can help you do everything – or just specific tasks – depending on your needs. As well as project management and coordination, we provide a link to the many other services in DNV. So if, for example, you have a cable problem, we can offer a full repair service from chartering a vessel to the tendering process.

After discussing your needs, our experts identify the best solutions for your problems. We act as your “eyes and ears” on-site, working at a range of locations, whether that’s at the sub-station, out at sea or walking the cable route onshore.
