James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS) has signed an exclusive cooperation agreement with Oil Management and Services (OMS) to provide combined oil management services to the European offshore renewables industry.
The combined and complementary expertise of JFMS and OMS will offer the delivery of full oil lifecycle services to customers in the European offshore renewables industry, including gearbox and hydraulic oil change, enhancing the safety and performance of offshore wind turbines.
Bruno Martinsen, owner of OMS, said: “This cooperation agreement will enable us to jointly provide turnkey oil management solutions to offshore renewable customers, including oil change, monitoring and maintenance, as well as the safe recycling and disposal of oil.”
As part of the collaboration, JFMS and OMS will jointly promote James Fisher’s Ship-to-Turbine (STT) oil exchange system for the direct extraction and refill of offshore wind gearbox oils directly from a conventional access vessel.
The agreement will also enable James Fisher and OMS to offer a broader range of complementary services to support asset management for customers in the offshore renewables industry, including diving and ROV services, offshore equipment rental and James Fisher’s innovative condition monitoring system, Mimic, with oil analysis reporting.
