Renewable, Turbine Installation, Commission, Maintenance
CLS was one of the first Oil & Gas service companies to acknowledge that their expertise, management systems and skills could be easily transferred to the Renewable Energy sector.
CLS were part of the energy industry supply chain which successfully completed the installation of the worlds largest offshore wind farm at the time. This involved the installation of 100 x 3MW Vestas V90 Wind Turbines in the Thanet Windfarm located 12 miles off the coast of Ramsgate, Kent.
As a result, we now have considerable experience in renewables with services that include design, engineering, fabrication and installation of new structures, and modification and decommissioning of existing ones.
Due to the success experienced, and the 'In-house' capability, CLS are now working with major global companies on joint venture projects.
UAV INSPECTION & ROPE ACCESS MAINTENANCE SERVICE
CLS Global Solutions has partnered with a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) specialist, to offer a unique inspection and maintenance service for both onshore and offshore wind turbines.
The UAV’s are utilised to carry out the initial aerial inspection of turbine blades, towers and nacelles. These systems are fully equipped with high quality video and photographic capabilities, which enable clear images to be obtained of any defects or damage to the turbines exterior and allow for more efficient asset integrity.
Once footage is reviewed, CLS provide fully IRATA accredited multi-disciplined technicians to complete the required repair and maintenance work to ensure the turbines are fully functional.
This is a new standard in Turbine inspection:
- Increased inspection rate
- Improved maintenance routines
- Enhanced wind farm ROI
- Reduced costs
- Increased safety
