SeaRoc Rolls Out In-Turbine Communications Solution

SeaRoc Group has launched a new, fully portable communications solution that allows technicians to communicate from within a wind turbine.

As radio signals are not able to be detected from within the confines of the turbine because of the metal structure, this can create a challenge for offshore wind farm maintenance.

SeaRoc’s new solution enables the radio signal to be broadcast within the turbine so technicians can communicate with third parties.

“This new product addresses a very specific and common problem during operations on offshore wind farms,'' Nick Murphy, Head of Operations at SeaRoc Group, said.

''Supplied in a light, compact unit that can be easily moved and set up, the system enables essential safety radio communications for technicians working inside a turbine. This solution increases both efficiency and safety as it means technicians don't have to go outside to talk to the rest of the network and they can now talk to other users from the inside of the turbine using their own handheld radio.”

This new solution is an extension to SeaRoc Group’s SeaHub range of communications solutions.
