THE VALUE OF CONTINUOUS, PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE


Semco Maritime helps offshore windfarm operators offer full service and maintenance concepts for offshore substations and wind turbine foundations – the so-called transition pieces


The company maximises uptime to drive down operational costs by having a pro-active approach to maintenance because it prevents break-downs which cause costly downtime during repair.


MARKET OPPORTUNITY


“After building and commissioning close to 20 offshore substations in the North Sea area we discovered a gap in the market. We found that offshore windfarm operators spend much time and energy on coordinating the work of a large number of service providers.


“Therefore, we are now offering a full scope service concept whereby we release time and resources for the operator enabling


him to concentrate on the operation of the windfarm,” explained Bjarne Christensen, Director of Service Operations at Semco Maritime.


CERTIFIED SPECIALISTS Semco Maritime have more than 30 years of experience in the offshore industry with modifications, maintenance and service for operators of oil & gas installations and offshore windfarms. They know the industry inside out and they possess the required range of special competences and skills in engineering, procurement, construction and installation.


Bjarne continued: “All our engineers and service technicians have the work and safety training, courses and certificates required to work with service and maintenance assignments offshore. They all have practical working experience from the construction phase of an offshore substation and most of them are multi-disciplined meaning that a small team can perform a wide range of service and maintenance tasks.”

FOCUS ON OPERATION Many offshore windfarm operators have engaged with several companies providing service and maintenance. Consequently the windfarm operators must do all the planning and coordination themselves. Apart from being very time consuming, this approach also demands more frequent visits to the substation and the wind power generators. By engaging with only one service provider, for whom service and maintenance is their core business, the operator can focus resources on operating the windfarm.


Sönke Scholl, O&M Manager, Nordsee One windfarm, which has a long term service and maintenance agreement commented: “Semco Maritime built the substation – it makes perfect sense that they service and maintain it. By letting one service provider take care of all service and maintenance aspects we save both time and money. This enables us to concentrate on what we do best – providing reliable wind power at the lowest possible cost.”


COMPUTER AIDED MAINTENANCE SCHEDULES All service and maintenance jobs start with a thorough general survey of the asset to check and assess the technical condition of the offshore substation and transition pieces. Based on this survey a customised service and maintenance schedule is developed. This schedule ensures that all systems are serviced according to manuals and requirements.
