Global Tech OSS platform

The OSS offshore substation was installed in May 2013, located in the North Sea, 138km off the cost of Emden – Germany. The windfarm consists of 80 turbines with a total output of 400MW.

Wescott Industrial Services were contracted by Global Tech to complete the remediation of all paint touch ups on the Offshore Transformer Module (OTM) – OSS. This project was awarded as part of a 4 year framework agreement.

Wescott had 6 crew total with 3 POB working on the OTM at any given time. Wescott overcome many logistical challenges with the impact of COVID19 and mobilising the men across Europe. Added with the further impact of Brexit, we still successfully utilised all cargo getting transported from UK to Germany, with all relevant export / import documentation completed to a high standard, ensuring material was sent offshore as per programme.

All work carried out is supported by a three-year warranty.
