Prontoport Wins Contract Extension from Siemens
UK-based renewable energy specialist Prontoport has won an additional 2-year contract from Siemens to support the commissioning and build of several new offshore wind farms.
The latest contract is with Siemens Projects, the part of the business which constructs new wind farms, and the initial two year period carries an option to extend for a further two years. The new contract is expected to be worth a seven figure sum each year for the next two years, Prontoport said.
Prontoport has already provided Siemens with project design, build and engineering maintenance services.
“We are acknowledged leaders in windfarm construction and servicing and have already proved our worth working on previous Siemens flagship projects at Gwynt Y Mor and West of Duddon Sands,’‘ Prontoport MD, Scott Telfer, said.
“We successfully passed Siemens Global Audit Procedure and have been chosen over much larger competitors to support the work that Siemens are doing in Hull, where they are investing £160 million on two manufacturing sites for the preassembly, installation and commissioning of several new offshore wind farms. We’ll be supplying trained personnel, from ground and tower technicians to highly specialist engineers across a range of disciplines.”
Prontoport has been working with Siemens Projects since March 2010 and, through the industry approved Prontoport Training Academy recruits, vets and trains personnel, both to EU & Industry standards and to client and project specification.
