Hywind pilot park floating wind farm Delivering HV safety management to Scotland’s first floating wind farm

Hywind pilot park Hero

What was the aim of the work?

Natural Power provided construction phase onshore HV safety management, which included the provision of Senior Authorised Persons (SAPs).

What was the outcome?

The services were delivered to the client’s satisfaction and without incident, and the project was successfully completed.

What did Natural Power do to get this result?

With a track record of successful HV system management of onshore and offshore projects up to 400kV, the team drew upon its previous experience to anticipate potential issues, and it established safe and successful working practices. This provided confidence in the safety of the project and, when completed, the SAPs were made available for ongoing support during the operational phase.

The SAPs were able to mobilise quickly in response to project requirements. We also: 

•    Operated the Hywind HV network for the application of the safety rules
•    Facilitated the commissioning and snagging of remedial works
•    Set to work and supervised contractors
•    Provided a 24/7 standby engineer.
