Centrica’s emergency preparedness for operating and maintaining offshore and onshore wind farms is further improved with the latest consultancy and specialist rescue training from HFR Solutions CIC
Case Study Requirements
Centrica is a leading energy supplier and services company operating one onshore and two offshore wind farms in the UK. Safety is one of their five key strategic focuses, with a mission statement incorporating the principle ‘zero harm’.
To help achieve this, the business invited HFR Solutions CIC to observe an offshore emergency exercise, and report on any issues and skill gaps. Centrica then conducted an internal review of the comprehensive report prepared by HFR Solutions CIC.
While under review, Centrica’s emergency response procedures were tested with a live casualty evacuation from the spinner in the nacelle, leading them to request HFR Solutions CIC to conduct specific on-site rescue training. The incident prompted Centrica to ask the question ‘Could this have been done better?’ and as a result ‘Project Boy Scout’ was commissioned.
Designed to ensure those operating and maintaining a wind farm had the skills and confidence to do so with increased safety, Project Boy Scout involved:
Simulated rescues were conducted off-shore, testing identified credible scenarios to identify complications in routine tasks, to assess how rescue techniques should be applied and what equipment should be utilised.
