The offshore wind industry has emerged as a transformative force within the global energy landscape. As the world transitions toward cleaner and more sustainable energy sources, offshore wind energy has taken centre stage, providing a dynamic solution to meet the growing energy demands while significantly reducing carbon emissions.
After years of driving down the cost of offshore wind, electricity from wind is now the UK’s most competitive source of electricity and in turn accelerates the sectors growth in not only the UK but globally. Government Initiatives such as Scotwind and the UK Offshore Wind Sector Deal are driving the industry forward by outlining strategic roadmaps for the development of the industry, technology and skills.
With numerous projects in operation and many more in the pipeline, the offshore wind industry continues to flourish, drive economic growth and is ultimately supporting the shift towards a cleaner energy future. Glacier Energy is proud to offer market leading Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and Inspection Services that are tailored to the specific needs of Wind Foundation Manufacturers in this rapidly evolving sector.
We have engaged Glacier Energy for the past 25 years, using services such as conventional and PAUT NDT inspection of transition pieces, jackets, jacket legs and substations for many offshore wind projects. During this period, we have found Glacier Energy to be a professional and reliable business partner, who have worked well with us over the years to provide a high quality service.
