Remotely-operated vehicle specialist Rovco has completed a £1million contract at the Galloper Wind Farm in the Southern North Sea.
The Bristol-based firm, which has an office in Aberdeen, carried out inspection work at the newly-constructed project around 18miles from the Suffolk coast.
Rovco carried out 24-hour ROV operations over a four-week period starting in September, inspecting all 56 turbines at Galloper, which generates enough electricity to power the equivalent of 380,000 homes.
The contract was awarded by operator Innogy Renewables UK ahead of a second inspection campaign for the internal foundations due to take place this month.
Rovco chief executive Brian Allen said: “This project demonstrates the future of offshore inspection.
“Innogy is the first of our customers to complete a whole field 3D inspection, the data they’ve obtained will go a long way to enabling and ensuring better asset integrity and knowledge of their infrastructure.
“The success of this project is also a testament to the efforts of our talented employees who work extremely hard to achieve the incredibly high standards evident within our inspection services.”
Galloper Offshore Wind Farm is owned by Innogy (25%), Siemens Financial Services (25%), Sumitomo (12.5%) and ESB (12.5%) and a consortium managed by Green Investment Group and Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (25%).
