Reflex Marine is proud to announce that it has joined DeepWind, a Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Scottish Enterprise-led initiative developing a new offshore wind supply chain cluster in the North of Scotland.
One of eight clusters formed under the Offshore Wind Sector Deal, DeepWind focuses on deepwater fixed bottom offshore wind technologies and will also act as the lead cluster for floating offshore wind in the UK.
Reflex Marine strategy manager Alun Jones commented: “Reflex Marine is a well-established name in the offshore wind space, particularly in Europe, but in Asia as well. Our offshore crew access equipment and solutions have been used since 2003 by our clients and offshore wind market partners like Seaway 7, ENGIE, DEME GROUP, Ørsted, TenneT, Jan de Nul NV and many others. We are proud to be a part of continuously growing green energy projects and developments and we are looking forward to working together with other companies to help develop a more sustainable and less carbon-heavy energy future.”
Reflex Marine’s personnel crew transfer equipment WAVE-4 proved to be a safe and versatile option for offshore crew transfer during all lifecycle phases of the offshore wind farms. WAVE-4 is a proud winner of the Safety At Sea Seatrade Award. WAVE-4 brings all the benefits of a seated transfer carrier to a product for standing passengers. It safely transports four standing passengers and has the smallest footprint of any standing transfer rigid carrier on the market.
For inspection and maintenance activities at height, Reflex Marine’s STORM-WORK soft-contact work basket is the best choice for work near fragile structures such as the wind turbine blades. Winner of the LEEA Safety Awards in 2019 STORM-WORK is a work basket that provides you with an ergonomic workspace for safely carrying out a wide range of tasks such as inspections, painting and repair work.
Jan de Nul NV TenneT and Seaway 7 are just a few avid users of Reflex Marine crew transfer equipment. Jan De Nul NV has been using WAVE-4 on the Changhua EPCI project while TenneT uses three STORM-WORK units on BorWin and DolWin offshore wind projects.
Seaway 7, the Renewables business unit of Subsea 7, used both WAVE-4 and STORM-WORK for Yunlin Offshore Windfarm Project off the coast of Taiwan and also for Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm off the Caithness coast in Scotland.
