Ørsted Selects Atlas Professionals to supply Offshore Wind Turbine Support Team for O&M activities

Following a competitive tender process, Ørsted has selected Atlas Professionals (Atlas) to provide specialised wind turbine support on its UK offshore wind farms. Atlas will also provide technical services for the developer in both UK, Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands. Both contracts will be supporting the Operations & Maintenance activities for Ørsted. 

The contracts have been awarded until the end of 2023, with a one-year extension option, and cover the inspection and service of wind turbine parts and provision of personnel for this kind of work on Ørsted’s operational offshore wind farms. Atlas started supplying personnel to the offshore wind industry more than 12 years ago. Nowadays, the company supplies personnel throughout the entire supply chain, from developing and consenting, installation to Operations and Maintenance.

The specialised wind turbine support includes endoscopic inspections of components inside the nacelle, especially of detailed parts in gearboxes; endoscopic inspections of main bearings, especially on Siemens Gamesa 6 MW direct drive (SGRE DD6.0) wind turbines; generator inspections, especially on 3.6, 4.0, DD6.0, and Vestas (MHI Vestas) V164 turbines; and uptower exchanges of components in generators and gearboxes.

Technical support includes delivering Ørsted-authorized personnel for major EOW campaigns for walk-downs and technical check points in turbines as well as internal blades, full scope heavy lift technicians and lifting supervisors for major component exchange campaigns and ad-hoc operations, and client representative for blade repair and upgrade/retrofit campaigns.

The technical support contract also covers performing site-related work as retrofit, scheduled annual service, exchange of hydraulic components, check and repair of components in the turbine and bolt tightening in relation to service schedule.
