Cost control along with enhanced safety and productivity
Ben Webster, Sales & Tendering Manager at Osbit, dropped into PES to tell us about their engineering challenges and solutions, which are driven by efficiency and tailored to the requirements of the customers in the offshore wind sector, in particular, but not exclusively. Health and safety awareness is a top priority throughout every project.
PES: Hi Ben, welcome to PES Wind, it’s good to talk to you. Would you like to begin by giving us a brief overview of Osbit?
Ben Webster: Osbit designs and builds next generation back-deck and subsea engineering technology, to support offshore renewable projects across the globe. Our solutions, which are tailored to suit each project, support the efficiency drive of offshore wind farm developers and O&M contractors to control costs and enhance safety and productivity.
We solve our customers’ operational problems by developing tailored, turnkey engineering solutions. Our engineers have accumulated decades of experience across the offshore industry. Our founder, Dr Tony Trapp, has been involved in the global offshore wind industry from the start and was part of developing the world’s first subsea trenching vehicles.
We combine this unique level of experience, with fresh thinking and new innovations, to deliver a diverse range of back-deck and subsea technology for use in offshore wind. Our key technology streams include access systems, subsea trenching vehicles, foundation installation equipment and cable testing rigs.
In recent years, we have significantly grown our presence in the UK and international renewable markets, most notably in offshore wind, in which our customer base continues to expand significantly.
