Service success at Rhyl Flats wind farm

Jon Lawson

As the first company in the world to carry out a vessel-mounted oil exchange on an offshore wind turbine back in 2013, Renewable Oil Services has now performed more than 500 offshore wind turbine oil exchanges on various turbines carrying out the gear, hydraulic and glycol coolant exchange in a safe, clean and efficient manner.

When approached by Innogy Renewables to assist it in carrying out the hydraulic oil exchange on the 25 Siemens 3.6 MW turbines at its Rhyl Flats wind farm located in the Irish Sea just north of the Port of Mostyn, Renewable Oil Services mobilised its offshore oil exchange equipment, people, Castrol hydraulic oil product and chosen vessel for the project, Mareel’s Caernarfon Bay.

Barry Sutherland, Managing Director Renewable Oil Services observed, “We pride ourselves at ROS in being on the fore front of oil exchange services within the wind turbine industry where we are continually innovating to provide our customers with a high standard of service while helping them to reduce turbine down time and LCOE.”
