OPERATIONS & MAINTENANCE

CAOMM PROVIDES OFFSHORE WIND FARM OWNERS WITH A RANGE OF SERVICES SUPPORTING FULL WIND FARM ASSET MANAGEMENT. THIS INCLUDES PROFESSIONAL CABLE STORAGE; DIFFERENTIATED VESSEL SUPPLY; AND CRITICALLY THE FIRST SUBSEA INSPECTION MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR (IMR) SOLUTION IN THE OFFSHORE RENEWABLES INDUSTRY. COMBINED, THESE ALL ACT TO MITIGATE FAILURES BY ASSESSING THE RISK TO AND INTEGRITY OF OFFSHORE WIND FARM ASSETS.

Our approach to O&M challenges the norms of existing O&M solutions and scope whether this is in; cable storage, where we offer a market leading long term carousel based solution; or vessel design, where we understand the through life or true cost of a vessel. It is our passionate view that subsea elements, considered by many to be benign exist in incredibly harsh environments and therefore can present a considerable risk to a project and require an IMR based solution.

Our services and solutions are based on a proactive approach. This proactive approach considers the risk to a project in terms of health and safety impact, integrity risk and the commercial consequences when a project is challenged with the subsea environment. Our unique knowledge and experience of subsea cables enables us to deal with these risks in a holistic manner, saving time and money for our clients. 

We believe that a proactive and appropriate O&M solution starts at the pre-construction development phase and runs through construction or installation to the operating wind farm phase with a view to the complete 20-25 year project life cycle. We see the combination of information both from data analysis and physical inspections as crucial in ensuring the cost effectiveness of an O&M strategy in delivering a balance between risk and cost.

Utilising in-house solutions such as our bespoke Cable Emergency Response Plans, Vessel Tracking Reports and software products such as EPOCH and integrated GIS and VisualGIS, we are able to collate and manage high quality historical and real time data. We can then develop integrity trends and ultimately risk analysis and risk mitigation solutions or if required remedial works such as cable repair or replacement.

We are committed to developing new solutions for the marketplace by drawing on the flexibility and breadth of services within CAOMM. This includes our Inspection Maintenance and Repair (IMR) solution that is supported by a range of innovative tools including; vessel designs; bespoke software solutions and the development of new subsea hybrid/crawler ROV designs and subsea tooling for cable protection measures. These tools are focussed entirely on O&M and designed to reduce risk, time and cost with a clear focus on quality, health and safety.
