James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS), part of James Fisher and Sons plc, is to supply E.ON with its offshore wind management system (OWMS).
E.ON will utilise the system to manage marine coordination for all operations and maintenance activities at both Humber Gateway and the Rampion offshore wind farm, currently in construction. The system is expected to help ensure the projects are more efficient by orchestrating all offshore operations through a single interface - from personnel tracking to vessel coordination.
OWMS will be used over a 36-month period on the E.ON operated offshore wind farms to document offshore personnel, site vessels, weather and all day-to-day activities.
“We’re delighted that E.ON has selected OWMS®. We know first-hand the benefits this system can bring to offshore wind farms, and we can’t wait to see it happen at Humber Gateway and Rampion,'' Martin Sisley, managing director of services at JFMS, said.
“We’re very much looking forward to working closely with the team at E.ON and getting them up and running with OWMS® so they can make a significant impact to the project’s efficiency.”
