Health and Safety Contract Award at Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm, Taiwan

Celebrating a Milestone at Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm

We are thrilled to announce that we have recently been awarded the contract for the Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm project in Taiwan. Specialising in risk management and compliance, we are proud to bring our expertise to this significant venture.

Offshore Wind Farm Support

Our role involves providing quality, health, safety, and environment (QHSE) guidance for subsea trenching services at the Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm. We actively commit to enhancing safety measures, mitigating risks, and reducing costs associated with exporting equipment from the Port of Blyth in Northumberland to Singapore and Taiwan.

With extensive experience in the offshore energy sector and high hazard environments, we are taking on the responsibility of coordinating Hazard Identification and Risk Assessments (HIRA). This includes managing risks related to subsea cable burial, vessel mobilisation, sea fastening, and equipment loading. Furthermore, we are addressing the additional complexities introduced by the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re ensuring the safety and well-being of our project staff during transit.

Our Director, Barry Cooper, expressed his enthusiasm, stating;

“To secure this contract is excellent news. And in the current economic climate, it’s fantastic to share some positive developments. The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced additional considerations. Including international staff movement with quarantine requirements in Singapore and the UK, which we are actively integrating into our approach.”

South Tyneside Council Support

We appreciate the support provided by South Tyneside Council. The business rates relief grant has played a crucial role in maintaining our business momentum during the pandemic. It has supported our existing clients and enabled us to secure this substantial new contract.

Barry expressed gratitude, saying;

“The grant has been instrumental in maintaining our business momentum during the pandemic, supporting our existing clients and enabling us to secure this substantial new contract. The business investment team at South Tyneside Council and One Trinity Green have been fantastic in providing quick and supportive assistance with business rates relief, constantly communicating government support guidance. The grant has allowed us to stabilise our business, collaboratively support our clients, and keep all our operations running smoothly.”

Equinor and SSE Renewables Announcement

In response to the recent announcement of Equinor and SSE Renewables building a new Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Base at the Port of Tyne for the Dogger Bank offshore wind farm, Barry expressed enthusiasm.

“It’s great news. We are right on the doorstep here in South Tyneside. As part of an incredible offshore energy supply chain in North East England and are absolutely delighted. It should help us as part of the local community in terms of access to opportunities in Dogger Bank. But also the wider socio-economic benefits the project will bring. The award will also raise further awareness of the world class offshore energy capabilities that exist in and around South Tyneside, including the Offshore Hub at One Trinity Green where we are based.”

Councillor Iain Malcolm, Leader of South Tyneside Council, added

“This is fantastic news. We understand the challenges that businesses have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s uplifting to celebrate a success story. We are pleased to have played a role in supporting Pentagon Assurance with vital financial assistance. Allowing them not only to survive, but to thrive during these challenging times.”
