Major remedial contract

Published:  06 October, 2016

Barrier Group businesses, specialist coatings provider Barrier, and rope access company, UK Total Solutions, report they have collaborated to complete a major remedial painting and maintenance contract on the London Array wind farm.

Operated by London Array on behalf of a consortium of E.ON, DONG Energy, La Caisse and Masdar, London Array is located in the Thames Estuary and is reported to be the world’s largest offshore wind farm. The contract involved coating system repairs to two offshore substations, which transmit power from the wind farm, which is 20km off the Kent coast, to shore.

In addition, the scope of works included coating repairs on 13 wind turbine transitions pieces and bolt-tightness checks on the Array’s Meteorological survey mast.

The project was delivered by a ten-man site team made up of experienced Barrier specialist coating technicians, including a UK Total Solutions-trained team of rope access professionals to minimise the need for offshore scaffolding.
