The contract, signed earlier this year, covers fire protection and detection on Ørsted’s offshore wind farms, including Hornsea 1 and Hornsea 2 in the UK, for the next five years. The integrated maintenance contract includes the provision of inert gas systems, compressed air foam, water mist and all detection including control systems.

Blaze, a Balmoral Group company, told that apart from the latest contract with Ørsted, it was currently providing fire protection systems for the rectifier platforms on five offshore wind projects, one in the UK and the other four in Europe. The company did not disclose the names of these projects and clients.

In a press release issued on 11 June, Blaze revealed a year-on-year growth of nearly 100 per cent, saying the growth was driven by its transition strategy focused on sector diversification and global expansion.

In the past year, the company has secured projects in both Europe and the Middle East, with 70 per cent of intake in the renewable energy sector.

This has also resulted in a 20 per cent increase in headcount at Blaze’s headquarters in Laurencekirk, according to the fire safety system provider.

“We are immensely proud of Blaze’s remarkable growth and the strides we’ve made in the renewables sector. Our team’s dedication and expertise have been pivotal in securing significant contracts and certifications, which not only enhance our service offering but also solidify our position as leaders in fire safety solutions,” said Stuart White, Operations Director at Blaze Manufacturing Solutions.

“The expansion of our workforce and the addition of key personnel underscore our commitment to innovation and excellence. As we look ahead, we are excited to build on this momentum and continue delivering exceptional quality and value to our clients worldwide.”
