HSEQ-360 secures contract win with floating offshore wind farm

Cobra Wind International Limited

Health and Safety Consultants HSEQ-360 Limited have been selected on a long-term contract to provide Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality Assurance services to Kincardine offshore wind farm.

The 50 MW Kincardine floating offshore wind farm was built by COBRA Group. It features five 9.525 MW turbines installed on semi-submersible floating structures designed by Principle Power and built by Navantia and Windar Renovables.

HSEQ-360's award at Kincardine follows other long-term deals having been secured for HSEQ-360 with Energy Services Group (ESG), a German headquartered service provider in Wind, Solar and Hydrogen. It sees the company return as the HSEQ partner for Opergy as part of the ‘Fit for Offshore Renewables’ (F4OR) initiative, a programme to develop the UK offshore renewable supply chain facilitated by the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult.

HSEQ-360 is currently providing Client Representation and HSEQ Support across Europe, and has contributed to several projects, including Thornton Banks, Walney, Hornsea and Galloper.

“We are delighted to provide HSEQ Management to the Operations and Maintenance phase at Kincardine. Having assisted the Operations Team in developing a management system to support O&M earlier this year, we are excited to support the project further by providing a range of onshore and offshore services across Health, Safety, the Environment and Quality.” HSEQ-360 Director, Steve Cook.
Ricardo Valverde, Head of O&M for the site, said: “Health and Safety in our operations is the ultimate priority, and having access to Chartered level professionals that understand operations is vital. Having worked closely with HSEQ-360 over several months, we are pleased to have agreed longer term support to assist in our objective of managing a safe and successful project”.

HSEQ-360 Operations Director Chad Brown added: “As we enter our third year, this marks another significant step in the development of HSEQ-360. This aligns with our strategy of providing an expanding package of value-adding services in offshore wind and renewables generally, to owners, operators and contractors that genuinely place HSEQ at the core of their work. We look forward to continuing to work closely with all involved at Kincardine”.
