Quality & Efficiency


Optimising installation programmes and improving efficiency, of the construction phase of offshore wind projects is one of the great challenges faced by the industry. Cost reduction initiatives during planning, development and construction are key in ensuring viability of projects for investors and stakeholders. However, it is imperative that reducing costs does not compromise the quality of operation phase of the installations.


CRITICAL PATH


Where construction activities lie on the critical path to project completion there can be added pressure to accelerate works to maintain target deadlines. Inter-array cable installation, termination and testing form part of the activities of which, switch on for operations is dependent upon.


H&Askham have worked on a number of projects providing inter-array cable services and have actively strived to develop not only the practical installation techniques but the overall strategy with which projects are delivered to result in both improved


“When acting as the contractor we are now able to feedback information to the client regarding accurate progress of the works to assist with the forward programming but further to this in the role of Client Representative the reporting provided focuses on Quality Assurance.”


Brian stresses, “Fundamentally a quality installation will provide longevity in service.”
