The Offshore Wind O&M Partnership (OWOP) has welcomed Rovco to its complement its package of operations and maintenance (O&M) services wind asset owners internationally.

OWOP is an alliance between RES, GEV Wind Power and Outreach Offshore and Rix Renewables.

Rovco, a provider of technology-powered offshore wind solutions, is to further enhance OWOP’s capabilities as a Tier 1 contractor for offshore wind asset owners. Through automated hydrographic survey and remote operating vehicle (ROV) operations, Rovco’s technical offering includes operations and maintenance services, construction support and marine site characterisation.

Based in the UK, OWOP was formally launched in late January 2024. Together, the alliance brings a coordinated approach to delivering safe O&M services, reducing the complexity and resource intensity associated with subcontracting. Through a single contract, offshore wind asset owners have access to all typical turbine, blade, substation, and balance of plant operations and maintenance services as well as workboats, advanced digital tools, and now, with Rovco, subsea O&M capabilities. The Partnership also offers RES’s centralised wind O&M coordination capabilities to help minimise shutdowns.

Along with offering a ‘one stop shop’ for O&M services and overall asset and contractor management capabilities, the Offshore Wind O&M Partnership also offers a tailored menu of services depending on the needs of customers.

Simon Deacon, operations and maintenance director for RES, said: “For example, an asset owner could package together two, three or four of the services offered by OWOP into a single contract to reduce the number of asset interventions. Or the Partnership could provide a standalone campaign combined with provision of vessels to minimise disruption to day-to-day operations. OWOP can deliver any such combination of services according to customer requirements.”
