EDS HV Group awarded 5-year RWE Renewables framework contract

The awarded contract covers all UK offshore windfarms with the flexibility for EDS to work across Europe and other onshore sites. 

EDS HV Group have successfully won a competitive 5-year framework contract with RWE Renewables which covers all UK offshore windfarms and provides flexibility for EDS to work across Europe and other onshore sites. The contract focuses primarily on cable fault response, identification and repair work, but will enable RWE Renewables to access the wider service offering of EDS too.

Under the framework agreement, EDS will manage all aspects of cable fault response by mobilising multi-skilled engineers to test and identify the specific fault location and provide a detailed report with recommendations on fault rectification. The high voltage electrical engineering firm will also support RWE Renewables in the fault repair process.

Speaking about the award, Corrine Barry, Business Development Manager at EDS said; 

“Being awarded this framework by RWE Renewables, one of the largest developers in the offshore wind industry is an exciting prospect and a testament to EDS’s long-standing reputation within the renewables sector.”

Ryan Murphy, Head of Operations added: 

“Over the past few years, the offshore wind industry has experienced faults with several export and inter-array cables. Whilst we’re working hard to provide proactive solutions to aid the fault location process and provide more data insights during operation; with the significant increase in offshore wind development globally, it is inevitable that more faults will occur. Therefore we have positioned ourselves appropriately to provide reactive fault response services centred around safety and network availability.”
