BOLTING TOOLS


Leading bolting specialists Gee-Force Hydraulics is consolidating its operations in the East of England at the heart of the UK offshore wind industry


Its hire business of tools and equipment has been so busy – with at least 80% of its hire business from its Great Yarmouth base – Managing Director Graeme Cook is shifting its Lancashire operation to the east, where all future sales will be handled.


Concentrating the business at the UK hub of offshore wind development will strengthen the company’s reputation for getting its tools into the hands of technicians and engineers offshore quicker than its competitors, usually within hours.


TARGET MARKET The multi-billion-pound offshore wind industry developing off the Norfolk and Suffolk coasts is a big target for the fast growing company. Sheringham Shoal, Scroby Sands and Greater Gabbard offshore windfarms already have a collective generating capacity of 881 MW.


Mr Cook commented: “Speed and 92 www.windenergynetwork.co.uk


reliability of mobilisation of our vast range of tools offshore and across the country is what we’re known for. Being in Great Yarmouth so close to and only hours away from these significant developments can only be a huge benefit for our customers.”


POTENTIAL


With the 402MW Dudgeon offshore wind farm soon to be operational, followed by the 336MW Galloper, with the 714MW East Anglia ONE starting construction with another zone for ScottishPower Renewables planned and Vattenfall’s Norfolk Vanguard and Norfolk Boreas – together generating 3.6GW – operations and maintenance of the turbines offers a potential large market for the company.


Mr Cook says Norbar’s Evotorque2 wrench provided the ideal solution for achieving quick, accurate torque on offshore wind turbine bolted connections – critical for their stability – and capable of incredible control in tough conditions.


RELIABLE STATE-OF-THE-ART TOOLS “The EvoTorque2 wrench offers a far more reliable torque and angle results than conventional tools with no need for final torqueing with a hydraulic wrench. And these wrenches are now available for hire in Great Yarmouth.”


EvoTorque2 includes Bluetooth connectivity, a 3,000 reading memory and Torque, Torque & Angle, and Torque Audit modes within its capabilities. Torque and angle data can be sent via the tool or a PC, either wirelessly via Bluetooth Smart, or wired using the USB cable supplied. These features provide the comprehensive joint traceability that operators and their clients require.
