A PROVEN SOLUTION TO THE SKILLS SHORTAGE IN THE RENEWABLE ENERGY SECTOR


With the continuing expansion of offshore renewable energy projects around the East Coast of England, the skills shortage is a constant challenge for all suppliers into this very important growth industry.


Since 2005 Site Operative Solutions renewable energy division, (SOS RED), has been working to address this pressing issue developing a proven strategy to satisfy its clients’ demands.


IMMEDIATE DEMAND


To meet the immediate demand and working closely with the major OEM’s, over the past eight years SOS RED has developed a core of senior project engineers with their own teams of discipline specialists that can be moved from project to project, transferring valuable experience in the life cycle of previous developments.


These disciplines include…


• Bid Management • Project Design • Site Management • Construction Management • Diving Co-ordinators • Commissioning Managers • Client Reps (including foundations, cables and wind turbines, on and offshore)


• Marine Co-ordinators • Cabling Expertise • HSE Site Managers • Offshore installation Managers • AP’s for lifting • Environmental Engineers • O&M Technicians, Welders etc


And last but not least… financial and administrative support, based on site. This method of support has now been successfully implemented on in excess of twelve major offshore projects.


DYNAMIC APPROACH


As with all strategies, there is a need for the approach to be dynamic and address future trends in demand. Therefore, SOS RED is assuming an active role in predicting potential future skill shortages and taking remedial action now.


STEM AMBASSADOR PROGRAMME Short term initiatives include the use of consultants from other energy sectors with transferable skills. However, the long term health of the sector will be in the hands of the nation’s current crop of students.


To this end the company has embarked on the STEM Ambassador Programme which is designed to excite and encourage young people to consider careers that require science, technical, engineering and mathematical skills.
