GLOBAL inspection, maintenance and marine services company, Rigmar Group, has successfully delivered a two-year contract to carry out inspection and maintenance for the Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm.

The project, delivered in 2019 and 2020, is the largest inspection and maintenance contract awarded at the Aberdeen Offshore Windfarm by Vattenfall, which owns the 11-turbine facility off the coast of the city.

Rigmar specialises in the provision of asset integrity, fabric maintenance and marine services to both offshore and onshore energy and infrastructure sectors and was the first Scottish company to secure such a contract, during the operational phase of the Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm, managing inspection and maintenance both above and below the water.

Valued at six figures per annum, the project was delivered by teams comprising a total of sixteen Rigmar personnel and included underwater surveys and remotely operated vehicle (ROV) inspections, data processing and chart production, rope access inspection and maintenance.

Founded in 2007, the Rigmar Group, which is headquartered in Aberdeen, has 57 full time employees, supplemented by consultants and contractors around the world to add additional support to specific projects.

Keith Nelson, Rigmar chief executive, said: “We are one of a small number of companies with the expertise and management structure to deliver full inspection and maintenance services above and below the water and our multi-disciplined and highly qualified personnel worked seamlessly with the Vattenfall team to successfully complete the project safely, on time and in budget.

“This was our first offshore wind project as a main contractor, and we have proven that our skills and expertise from decades operating in the oil and gas industry is fully transferrable to the renewables industry.”

The 11 turbines off the coast of Aberdeen, have a total generating capacity of 96.8 MW, which can supply the equivalent of 70% of Aberdeen’s household electricity demand. The project will annually prevent more than 130,000 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere.
