SeaPlanner to Carry Out Marine Coordination for Kentish Flats Extension
SeaPlanner has been selected by Vattenfall as its marine coordination and management tool for the Kentish Flats Extension offshore wind farm.
This extends SeaPlanner’s presence on Vattenfall sites, which already includes the construction site, Dan Tysk, and generation projects, Thanet and Kentish Flats.
The SeaPlanner system provides the construction team with a complete management and tracking solution for project data and information. This includes personnel and vessel tracking, certification management, document management and also the new ground breaking, online induction module.
Dominic Stratton, SeaPlanner Manager: “SeaPlanner is proud to provide the Vattenfall team with a cost effective way of managing their offshore construction activities, helping the team ensure safety and optimise efficiency of the project.”
The Vattenfall team is also using SeaPlanner’s new ‘Induction Manager’ module which helps minimise administration time with personnel completing inductions online and ensuring all personnel are fully inducted and suitably certified prior to arrival onsite.
Toby Rayner, Marine Coordinator at Kentish Flats Extension added: “The SeaPlanner software will limit the amount of vessel downtime by ensuring personnel are ready to go the moment they arrive onsite. It was important to us that inductions could be carried out on a pc or mobile device making it accessible to all, especially when working within the offshore sector where desk based PC access is limited.”
SeaPlanner is an offshore marine management and coordination system, which has currently been used on 728 of the UK’s offshore wind turbines, two thirds of all those deployed in UK waters. The system is constantly being developed with innovative systems to further benefit the offshore construction industry.
