Part of James Fisher and Sons plc, the company has recently completed a successful offshore internal blade repair campaign alongside partners, SGRE, at Westermost Rough Windfarm.

As part of the six-month project, completed on time and within budget, Rotos 360 provided the wind farm with a full turnkey solution, which included labor and vessel supply and full inspection and repairs as well as a follow-up analysis.

“Rotos 360’s professionalism was evident right the way through the project, from the conception and planning of the works, through the project execution and into the reporting and documentation,” said John Dykes, senior project manager at SGRE. “Their commitment to safety and quality was exemplary and was a key factor in the project reaching a successful outcome.”
