Wind Turbine installation is a complex operation made increasingly challenging as bigger turbines are installed further offshore. With predicted WTIV demand set to soar in coming years, coupled with new technologies emerging on-board, it is imperative vessels have a trained and competent crew.
ADC assesses crew training and competency to ensure the vessel crew and management has the technical capability to undertake the operation safely and efficiently. This is delivered as part of a wider vessel assurance scope or as a standalone service.
Our competency assessments include:
Above all, we recognise a sensitive approach is required when assessing crew competence. With this in mind we use specialists with operational backgrounds with excellent interpersonal skills. In addition they are specially trained in delivering competency assessments in a non-disruptive and non-confrontational manner.
Being an integral part of an offshore wind farm development, it is imperative vessels are proven to have environmental integrity prior to commencing operations. ADC assesses a vessel’s environmental management in accordance with international regulations such as MARPOL and ISO14001.
A typical ADC environmental audit would consider:
Additionally, ADC can support with the development of Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) criteria for the selection of vessels. Furthermore we can verify the marketed vessel information versus actual environmental capability and performance on-board to give an objective viewpoint on true performance capability.
A fundamental component of safe offshore operations is an effective safety management system (SMS). Our independent safety management system audits ensure a robust system is in place, fully compliant with client standards and local regulatory requirements such as the UK offshore Safety Directive.
