FAIR WINDS FOR HUTTON’S AS SPECIALIST SUPPLY SECTOR GROWS


Wind energy is becoming big business on the UK’s east coastline employing hundreds of staff both on and offshore.


SUPPLIES AND DISTRIBUTION


Keeping them supplied with fresh produce and other provisions, medical products, spares and technical equipment is Hutton’s, the UK’s largest ship supply company.


With the Humber estuary set to become a world-renowned centre for the manufacture and installation of offshore windfarms, they are fortunate to have their largest distribution centre right in the middle of this expanding area.


A PAST TO BE PROUD OF


Headquartered in Hull, they have been supplying the maritime industry for almost 200 years – since 1820. During that time the shipping industry has changed remarkably and today their international customers are a varied group, ranging from ocean-going ships at sea for months, to offshore-support windfarm construction vessels.


FACILITIES


Hutton’s has an extensive warehouse and storage facility at Hull making it the ideal supplier for the Humber estuary wind farm hub. In addition, its expertise in supply logistics and warehousing solutions, its comprehensive stocklist and its competitive pricing make it an important partner to this specialised sector. In addition they proud to be a Unitor /WSS supply agent.


SATISFIED CUSTOMERS


Among their many satisfied customers is wind installation provider A2Sea which regularly receives a wide range of supplies, provisions, medical, equipment, technical and industrial items.


Buyer Allan Logtholdt says: “Hutton’s and A2sea have been working together with success to supply our vessels with a full range of provisions, medical, technical and industrial stores. Hutton’s excellent service has helped them become one of our close partners in the UK”.


Other examples of Hutton’s work in this fast-developing field include provision supply to Dutch floating hotel specialist C-bed’s two floatels, for which good-quality, nutritious produce is a priority. Also the supply of medical, technical and industrial items to Gulf Marine Services’


Jane Hathway, general manager of Ferriby Group International, said: “There are a lot of maritime basics involved in the offshore wind sector – whether it’s establishing the process of shipping larger turbines out to sea, safely managing the transfer of marine engineers to these turbines, or coming up with proper environmental systems.


“Our experience working with some of the largest maritime companies around the world, either in terms of training, consultancy or third party auditing, means we are well prepared for helping the renewables industry as it grows in the Humber area and on the east coast of England.”


SERVICES AND STANDARDS Ferriby Group International’s services include working with companies on documented management systems that


meet the needs of various International Standardization Organization (ISO) codes – a standard seen by many global wind turbine companies as a necessary requirement for businesses working throughout the supply chain.
