Following a competitive tendering process, conducted on behalf of one of the big 6 energy companies, by Ecosse Subsea Systems, industrial supply company OAASIS Group was awarded a two year framework agreement by the energy company to supply equipment to the energy giant’s wind farm.
The £736 million offshore wind farm project off the Humber Estuary on the Yorkshire coast will have 73 wind turbines when fully operational. Ecosse Subsea Systems, a technology based company operates the SCAR trenching plough and various other technologies and will supply the major utility provider’s offshore wind farm with the carousel and back deck personnel tasked with the installation of the Humber Gateway array cables.
Ecosse required PPE and MRO equipment for a 50 man team for the duration of the contract. OAASIS were able to supply almost all of the items requested on a consumables list provided by the client including essential tools and industrial consumables, workwear, life jackets, marine survival suits and various personal protective items such as gloves and footwear.
Procurement and Supply Chain Specialist with Ecosse Subsea Systems reported that,
After a very comprehensive tendering process conducted on behalf of [the energy giant], OAASIS quoted over 95% of the items on a very diverse consumable list and proved to be best overall
He went on to say that subsequent to the contract award,
[we] have been very impressed with the fast, personal and detailed response rate and the on-time delivery and quality of the customer service provided. OAASIS are to be commended for their high standards and have clearly set a new benchmark for the supply of safety, technical equipment and consumables for the Wind Energy and Oil & Gas sectors
OAASIS have supplied over half of the UK’s big 6 energy companies to dat. We first worked with this client on a wind farm local to our Great Yarmouth office just over ten years ago, since then we have supplied the majority of offshore wind farms up and down the East Coast of England as well as many more across the rest of the UK and Europe, including London Array, Burbo Bank, Robin Rigg, Gwynt y Mor plus Germany’s Meerwind and Bard.
Lee Sparkes, Business Development at OAASIS expressed the company’s delight at the award of the contract for such a prestigious client.
