QUALITY SUPPORT FOR OPERATIONS & MAINTENANCE


We introduce Boston Energy, our sponsor for this feature who are dedicated to the delivery of commercial energy solutions using renewables. Adrian Yeaman, Operations Manager takes up the story…


OVERVIEW


Boston Energy is a division of Bostonair, who with the parent group supply engineers to the aviation and turbine maintenance industries. From the beginning, personnel from our highly skilled aviation based workforce were selected and trained to Siemens for the O&M activities associated with wind turbines. This gave Boston Energy the ability to support Operations and Maintenance with quality engineering support from the onset and has proved a great success at site level support.

RECRUITMENT


The company recruit and train candidates from mechanical and electrical backgrounds. These can be drawn from heavy or light mechanical, commercial electrical, military engineering, aeronautical or other heavy mechanical industries. We believe this broad approach brings a wide range of skills, experience, maturity, flexibility and a ‘can-do’ attitude that identifies Boston Energy as delivering services at a level to exceed expectations. With a continuous improvement focus Boston Energy have committed to training across a broad range of turbine types, developing core service competencies and working towards involvement in construction roles. Within the last 18 months, the company has taken over service managed O+M contracts for UK onshore WTG assets and delivered a broad range of service and troubleshooting support, assisting our European client with the implementation of UK legislative training courses and Health and Safety protocols for use by their staff when working in the UK.
