In an innovative initiative to provide value-added services, SGS Wind Energy Services has commenced to provide comprehensive occupational Health, Safety, Security, and Environmental (HSSE) auditing services globally. These services have been expanded to include Legal Mapping and Risk Management Advisory Services for offshore wind farms, in order to assist project owners and contractors in improving the HSSE management systems and operations of their wind farm projects.

Legal Mapping

The new legal mapping service by SGS is designed to identify for clients the mandatory requirements and applicable regulations they must comply with in order to transport, store, install, commission and operate wind turbines in a specific country. The value of this service lies in SGS enabling of clients to build and operate wind farms in selected countries without breaching local legislations, and ensuring that all such issues are identified at an early stage in the project. Among the operational areas covered by the legal mapping services are road safety during transportation, special storage requirements for heavy equipment, working at heights, working under loads during installation, electrical safety compliance during commissioning of wind turbines and lift inspections during operation.

SGS Wind Energy completed its first legal mapping project in cooperation with SGS Bulgaria’s Industrial Services division. This pioneer legal mapping project proved to be a seamless example of collaboration between the managing office, SGS UK, and the executing office, SGS Bulgaria. The client recognized the value that SGS could bring to its projects; they commissioned a two-week HSE supervision service project for their onshore wind farm which has now been extended to four months.

Risk Management Advisory Services

Another new service now offered by SGS Wind Energy is risk management advisory for offshore wind farms. SGS Wind Energy Risk Management Services are designed to assist the client in mitigating specific project risks at every stage of offshore wind farm projects, from conception through to operation. This is a high value-adding service for clients at the conceptual phase as it provides the necessary support for the decision to move ahead with a project or not. The service applies proven risk management techniques to identify, quantify, assess, simulate, mitigate and manage the risks in a project. It covers all stages of a project cycle including design, supplier capability and delivery time, availability of specialized sea-going transport, commissioning, as well as operations and maintenance.
