Galloper celebrates environment accreditation

In: Windfarms
The Galloper Wind Farm team is celebrating the recent award of an ISO 14001 certificate in recognition of improved environmental performance. The ISO 14001:2015 is an internationally recognised Environment Management System (EMS) that, if achieved, highlights continuous improvement and reduced environmental impact.

The award is given by Lloyds Register, and the Galloper team received its complete certification in late August 2020, having worked towards the standard for 12 months.  The formal certification audit has two parts. Part One was achieved successfully in May this year.  

Guy Middleton, Galloper's General Manager, said: “Successfully completing this process has been a great opportunity for Galloper to verify current working practices against a renowned and respected industry benchmark.  As an offshore wind farm we are a hundred percent committed to continuously improving our performance to reduce environmental impact.”

Within the report, Lloyds Register noted: “The system has developed very well since stage 1 and has been seen to be performing at a good level, particularly for a newly implemented system.”

Galloper is a 353 MW offshore wind farm located in the Outer Thames estuary, 30 km off the coast of Suffolk. First power was generated in November 2017, with full generation following in March 2018. The project features 56 SWT-6.0-154 wind turbines and is expected to power over 250,000 homes annually. It is owned by RWE, Siemens Financial Services, Sumitomo Corporation and ESB and a consortium managed by Green Investment Group and Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets.
