At PES we know that maximising uptime and reducing costs are essential to the offshore wind power business. Semco Maritime helps offshore wind farm operators do exactly this by offering full service and maintenance concepts for offshore substations and wind turbine foundations - the so-called transition pieces. Semco Maritime helps offshore wind farm operators maximise uptime and drive down operational costs by offering full service and maintenance concepts for offshore substations and wind turbine foundations, the so-called transition pieces. It is simply good business to have a pro-active approach to maintenance because it prevents break-downs which cause costly downtime during repair. ‘After building and commissioning more than 20 offshore substations in the North Sea area we discovered a gap in the market. We found that offshore wind farm operators spend much time and energy on coordinating the work of a large number of service providers. Therefore, we are now offering a full scope service concept whereby we release time and resources for the operator enabling him to concentrate on the operation of the wind farm,’ says Bjarne Christensen, Director of service operations at Semco Maritime.
