Thanet Offshore Wind Farm Maintenance & Protection Contract

Thanet Offshore Wind Farm Maintenance & Protection Contract completed by SCA Group’s Rope Access Division for Vattenfall.

July 2013 saw the SCA Rope Access Team successfully secure a £350k contract to complete a maintenance program for Vattenfall, at the Thanet Offshore Wind Farm. The offshore substation had a number of coating defects and areas of damage, and SCA’s dedicated Rope Access division were recruited to carry out the required repairs.

The contract to complete the desired maintenance work at Thanet, required SCA to provide the following:

  • On & Offshore Personnel
  • Task specific Tools, Plant and Equipment
  • Materials & Expendables
  • Management and Office Support
  • Accommodation Subsistence & Transport costs
  • Onshore Storage Facilities
  • Access requirements for Offshore working

The Thanet Offshore Wind Farm is located 7 miles off the Kent coastline, and is the World’s third largest facility of its kind (as at June 2013).

Steve Watkins, Service Leader at the Thanet Wind Farm, confirmed SCA’s success on the project by praising the attitude of the Rope Access Division’s management and highly skilled employees. SCA were always helpful and pro-active on site, always problem solving and with a commendable can-do attitude.
