THE PERFECT LOCATION HUMBER BEGINNINGS


In 2014, the successful management of a CWind project in the Humber area required the establishment of a project office in Grimsby Fish Docks. What was then the company’s first satellite office, consisting of a Project and a Site Manager in a temporary structure, has since turned into a major operational hub for CWind. The company currently coordinates its services to nine offshore windfarms from its Grimsby office, employing around 150 contractors and staff. Large windfarms off the Humber coast, such as Humber Gateway, Lincs and Westermost Rough are obviously a central focus for the team.


MARINE CONTROL CENTRE GRIMSBY


Earlier in 2016 the company established its first marine control hub and now runs the vessel and fleet management for


several of its projects from its Grimsby premises. Stef Callis, General Manager (Grimsby) commented: “This location is perfect for us. It has good access for our vessels and ample storage facilities which not only allows us to provide a wide range of offshore services, but will also support us with our future expansion plans.” The most high-profile of the services


CWind provides from Grimsby is no doubt the 20-year Operations and Maintenance (O&M) contract for the Westermost Rough OFTO (Transmission Capital), which was awarded earlier this year. Under this contract, the company provides the full range of O&M services for the offshore and onshore substations. Since its acquisition by Global Marine earlier this year, the company now has access to larger vessels, such that it can also add a range of cable repair services.


Grimsby is proving the perfect location for offshore service provider CWind


REACHING ACROSS THE CHANNEL When it comes to operations, there aren’t many service projects the staff at their Grimsby office aren’t involved. While the company is putting plans in place to expand its local operational capabilities in Germany, it’s worth noting that the majority of these projects are currently run from the Grimsby office. With the expected increase in construction and O & M services over the next few years, the focus for CWind in Grimsby is clear… local solutions, with local staff for local projects – based on experience gained Europe wide.
