James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS), has seen its offshore operations at Galloper offshore wind farm (OWF) start with the attendance of a three-man emergency response team, in support of the foundation installation works starting at the site.
The emergency response team and the CTV Severn Provider”will provide emergency medical treatment and rescue assistance in the event of an incident. The Severn Provider will also be aiding the on-site teams by transporting cargo and personnel to and from the offshore construction base, helping ensure the generator maintenance and refuelling is undertaken safely and efficiently.
JFMS is supporting various aspects of construction, with the company responsible for providing services including the offshore construction coordination base set-up in Lowestoft, quayside co-ordination, marine co-ordination, marine management systems, vessel refuelling, emergency response teams, subsea services, guard vessel and CTVs.
David Smail, project lead at JFMS said of the latest advances at Galloper: “2017 will be a very busy year for the Galloper project, particularly offshore, as the turbine foundation installation continues, array cable work commences, and the installation of the 6MW Siemens turbines gets underway.”
