Inspection Management Tools in Offshore Wind: Improving Safety, Efficiency and Compliance

ORE Catapult offshore wind testing & validation

The expansion of the wind industry has led to increasing requirements for more inspection tasks, by more technicians, on larger turbines.

This demand comes with the parallel requirement for a better means of recording the activity that goes on at offshore and onshore wind farm sites. The management of assets, equipment and operations in the industry is a prime example of how the time, cost, and health and safety benefits offered by digital services can be exploited.

This O&M Case Study, by Roberts Proskovics and Craig Stout, provides insight from Papertrail, one of the wind industry’s leading paperless management service providers.
