JFMS provides E.ON with its cutting-edge offshore wind management system - OWMS®
James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS), part of globally operating James Fisher and Sons plc, has announced it will supply E.ON with its leading offshore wind management system (OWMS®).
E.ON will utilise the system to manage marine coordination for all operations and maintenance activities at both Humber Gateway and the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm, currently in construction(1), helping to ensure the projects are more efficient, by orchestrating all offshore operations through a single, simple interface; from personnel tracking to vessel coordination.
OWMS®, which is the renewable industry’s most reliable marine coordination system, will be used over a 36-month period on the E.ON operated offshore wind farms to document offshore personnel, site vessels, weather and all day-to-day activities.
Martin Sisley, managing director of services at JFMS, commented:
“We’re delighted that E.ON has selected OWMS®. We know first-hand the benefits this system can bring to offshore wind farms, and we can’t wait to see it happen at Humber Gateway and Rampion.
“We’re very much looking forward to working closely with the team at E.ON and getting them up and running with OWMS® so they can make a significant impact to the project’s efficiency.”
