SeaRoc Group’s marine management and monitoring tool, has been selected by E.ON to help manage the operations and maintenance phase of the Humber Gateway offshore wind farm through its software system.
The SeaPlanner software has been used on the project since April 2013, providing personnel and operations management during the construction phase. This first-hand experience of the Humber Gateway project, combined with the software’s extensive industry insight that has built up over the last eight years from offshore data, provided E.ON with the ideal solution for managing the O&M of the project located off the Holderness coast.
SeaPlanner will be providing E.ON’s O&M team with a complete management and monitoring solution, which includes personnel and vessel tracking, certification management and also the latest feature of the software, Induction Manager – which helps minimize cost and administration time for inducting personnel and contractors.
Katie Wright, Maintenance Coordinator at E.ON’s Humber Gateway Wind Farm, commented: “SeaPlanner has helped us maintain both safety and efficiency. We’ve been impressed with its capabilities and believe it to be a cost-effective solution, making it the preferred choice for the generation phase of Humber Gateway.”
This new contract extends SeaPlanner’s presence on E.ON’s sites, having previously been successful under a framework for Humber construction, Amrumbank and Arkona offshore wind farms, E.ON is also currently using the SeaPlanner Spatial database and SeaRoc GIS services at its Robin Rigg and Scroby Sands offshore wind farms – monitoring seabed movements and facilitating data management with the sites OFTOs.
Humber Gateway adds to SeaPlanner’s extensive portfolio of O&M projects which include Thanet, Kentish Flats, Teesside, and Dan Tysk offshore wind farms.
