Film-Ocean Ltd, based in Ellon Aberdeenshire, is delighted to share that they have successfully completed an offshore wind farm installation project in Taiwan, in partnership with a valued client.
Despite facing adverse environmental conditions, Film-Ocean’s skilled ROV crew demonstrated their expertise and commitment in delivering a successful project. As an integral part of this project, Film-Ocean collaborated with a long-term client and operated from a state-of-the-art Construction Support Vessel. A Schilling HD Work Class ROV system was utilised to focus on supporting the massive 600 MW offshore wind farm in Taiwan during its installation phase.
Supporting multiple foundations and 9.1MW turbines, the Schilling HD Work Class ROV was required to operate in water depths ranging from 25m to 40m. The wind farm's installation spanned several years, marking a testament to the offshore team’s dedication, and expertise. Film-Ocean's advanced tools, such as multibeam Sonar, high-pressure Jetting System, and hydraulic Subsea Cleaning Tools, enabled Film-Ocean to excel at every stage of the project.
In this complex project, a carefully planned installation sequence was crucial. Film-Ocean’s ROV visual inspections ensured precision in tasks such as pile cleaning and subsea earthing cable connections. Film-Ocean was able to demonstrate its commitment to quality through conducting "as found" and "as left" surveys in a 30M x 30M grid around each pile location.
Mike Mackie, Head of Operations at Film-Ocean, expressed his gratitude to the client's team and Film-Ocean’s offshore personnel for their collaborative efforts in ensuring the success of this project. Film-Ocean is excited to continue its journey in supporting the evolving renewable energy landscape.
