Our core business is Onshore and Offshore Operations Management: shared-cost solutions or tailor-made set-ups. Our services vary from full operations take-over to tailored participation in existing organizations to the design of a future-proof organisation set-up (Operational Readiness).
Once your wind farm is up and running, operations management and maintenance is a 24/7 task: i.e. work permit coordination, alarm and emergency handling, analysis and reporting. It is our day-to day business to take care of over 1400 MW of wind energy turbines, both onshore and offshore.

The profitability of wind energy plants is directly dependent on the commercial revenues. Therefore maximising the productivity as well as a high selling price of the supplied energy are key for commercial success.
As your dedicated business partner, we look after your business case and make sure each contract is compliant to rules & legislations. Our support includes the definition of strategies (wind forecasting and power trading), optimal contract conditions and continuous identification of improvement potential.
Safety should always be the main objective when you expect (your) people to work in hars environments and often hazardous (offshore) situations.
From our Operations Centre in Emden, we monitor 24/7 your assets, (safe) operation, incident reaction and organize the required inspections. Based on our experience and lessons learned, our QHSE department provides customized training and guidelines for all employees.
Today's market for the operations and maintenance of onshore wind turbines shows a broad application of full service contracting. All seems to be well arranged. Practice, however, seems to differ from an ideal situation. In his experience gained as HSE Consultant at OutSmart, Luuk Schoo has learnt that in daily practice, guaranteed availability rates often have a negative impact on safe working practices in wind turbine environments.
