ABS Group has been chosen to assist in developing inspection procedures that will ensure safe and efficient operation of these facilities.

The project will include a review of the domestic and international offshore wind farm inspection regulations, standards, and best practices for the inspection of the assets. Based on this review, ABS Group will develop recommendations for the types of inspections that should be conducted, the inspection procedures that should be followed, and the components that should be included in the inspections.

In addition, ABS Group will identify training that should be delivered to inspectors, with particular consideration given to basic safety training.
