Survitec supplies safety suits

SurvitecSafety solutions provider, Survitec, has secured an order for its Gen 2 Wind Tri Approved Suit. The suit will be used for all helicopter transfers by Ørsted during the construction of Hornsea One.

Specifically made for the renewable energy market, the Gen 2 Tri Approved Suit is fully waterproof, breathable, flame retardant and provides functionality to the wearer. Approved to both the Marine Equipment Directive and European Transmission System Operators (MED / ETSO) standard and the Personal Protective Equipment (CE-PPE) standard, a single suit is capable of supporting aviation transit, constant wear work and marine transit.

Ross Johnston, Global Key Account Manager at Survitec, said: “In addition to a long and proud history in the oil and gas industry, Survitec has recently developed an array of products that have been specifically designed for the renewable energy sector. It is an honour, and ringing endorsement, to have been selected by the world’s largest offshore wind farm developer, Ørsted, to support the significant Hornsea Project One.

"When operational in 2020, the wind farm will produce enough power for over one million homes and we are proud to assure Ørsted that all workers on Hornsea Project One will be protected by the very latest in safety technology.”

Expected to be the largest wind farm in the world,
Hornsea One is located 120km off the Yorkshire coast and, once complete, is expected to power two million homes.  The project, which is expected to be complete in 2021, will see 174 wind turbines installed and will feature the longest powerline cable route at 900km.
