A contract to keep hundreds of Vattenfall’s wind turbines operational and safe has been awarded to east coast offshore wind services provider 3sun Group.
3sun Group, which already employs 200 technicians, will carry out statutory inspections across the Swedish energy group's 50 onshore and offshore windfarms in five countries, in the UK, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden.
3sun Group, acquired by energy company Worley in October 2019, has 15-25% of the market in offshore wind inspection services, installation and maintenance in Europe and the UK. It is currently inspecting more than 70% of the UK's offshore wind turbines and has installed more than 4000.
Graham Hacon, 3sun Group founder and now Vice President of Offshore Wind (Global) for Worley, said, "This is the biggest framework agreement in our 12-year history and will create 20 to 30 new jobs, which will support the growth of our international multi-skilled workforce."
