The company has also branched out into Europe and Africa and a total of 40 full-time technicians currently work for OPS, with many self-employed contractors adding to the numbers; up to 100 additional crew were anticipated in 2015, as seasonal scheduled maintenance projects emerged.
Offshore Painting Services is currently performing IRATA rope access blade inspections, cleaning and tower surface coatings repairs to Siemens 2.3mw wind turbines at Tarfaya Wind Farm in southern Morocco. Its team of expert rope aaccess technicians have been on site since early August 2014. Tarfaya is a coastal desert location in southern Morocco with optimal wind conditions and the project will aid Morocco's electricity demand growth which has averaged 6% per year since 1998 and will continue to grow in the next 20 years. When fully operational, the 300 MW wind project is expected to yield a high load factor of 45% and will represent about 40% of the country’s total wind capacity at commercial operation date.
The main aim of the company's move to Grimsby is to be a lot more competitive by employing locally, rather than having to factor in travel costs.
