The largest energy company in Denmark Orsted have awarded Specialist Marine Consultants (SMC) with a framework agreement to provide statutory inspection and auxiliary services to their sites across the UK.

SMC, the UK-based marine consultancy, said that the contract will run for an initial 2-year period, with extension options available for a further 2-years, based on performance.

Orsted’s portfolio includes 11 operational offshore windfarms in the United Kingdom, with a further 2 projects currently under construction, soon taking Orsted’s installed capacity in the UK to over 6,300MW – all sites are included within the inspection framework awarded to SMC.

SMC began working with Orsted in 2009 across the Gunfleet Sands project and have since gone on to deliver a range of services to the developer throughout Europe. This latest contract award will see SMC provide highly-skilled local people to developments across the country, with the company extremely well placed to service both Orsted’s East and West coast hubs.

The award of this statutory inspection framework caps what has been an extremely successful year for SMC, with the company having enjoyed continued growth, in addition to receipt of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2018 earlier in the year.

Dean Coates, Operations Director at SMC commented, “We are extremely proud to continue to build upon our long-standing relationship with Orsted. Their commitment to high-quality, safe solutions is entirely aligned with our own values, as is their commitment to developing the skills of the communities local to their projects”.
