Bilfinger Salamis UK operates on blades, transition pieces, towers and substations to deliver improved productivity, reduced asset downtime and lower cost maintenance through integrated Inspect, Repair and Maintain (IRM) strategies with multi-skilled teams.
As the wind energy sector matures, and turbine and substation assets reach the end of their warranty periods, operators need to have the assurance that their asset maintenance regimes are cost effective. The delivery of safe maintenance operations and reduced OPEX is vital to ensuring the long term success of the sector.
Bilfinger Salamis UK has over 40 years’ experience in delivering inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) services to the energy industry. With over 1,500 offshore operatives, the company delivers complex offshore inspection and maintenance projects across the UK.
As one of the UK’s largest rope access employers, the business has capacity to deliver integrated inspection, cleaning, repair and maintenance, combining disciplines to provide clients with ‘find and fix’ teams that reduce the number of contractors, asset downtime, and the number of mobilisations to assets.
By combining blade, tower, transition piece and foundation inspection with coatings and structural repair services, these specialist rope access teams can drive down maintenance costs, adding in complementary services such as specialist cleaning for marine growth removal, EX electrical inspections, and lifting and rigging.
