Launch of Cooperation

The 2018 wind season starts promising for RTS. Our specialists are very much in demand within renewable projects throughout Europe. A special highlight for us is that "GE Renewable Energy", one of the largest wind turbine manufacturers in the world, currently has thirteen RTS specialists in action.

Two Quality Inspectors, an Offshore Planner and ten Punchlist Technicians are working in the Eemshaven baseport for the Merkur offshore wind farm project.
The 396 MW wind farm under construction is located about 35 km north of the island of Borkum in the North Sea. The installation of the 66 GE HaliadeTM 150-6MW wind turbines is expected to be completed in September 2018.

The outstanding cooperation with our British colleagues at RTS Wind Recruitment Ltd in Middlesbrough deserves special mentioning. Thanks to the dedication of Managing Director Kevin McBride and his team, we were able to send ten Punchlist Technicians from the UK to the Netherlands within a week.

We thank GE Renewable Energy for their confidence in us and look forward to a successful collaboration.

Edda Wind, the offshore wind segment of the Østensjø Group, has signed long term time charter
agreements with MHI Vestas and Ocean Breeze Energy respectively for two of the four offshore
wind vessels ordered from Spanish yards.

The change of model towards clean energy accelerated commercial activity, as strong order intake in Q1 FY 2020 (+82% YoY) boosted the order book to €28,089m. Sales stood at €2,001m and the balance sheet remains sound, with €175m in net cash. Despite good long-term prospects, the complex situation in the industry and extraordinary costs in executing five onshore projects located in Northern Europe had a negative impact on profitability.

Windea Offshore, together with its partner WP Systems, has taken another step towards establishing the WINDEA Blade Service concept. Last week the operation of the working platform System terra was successfully demonstrated at a Siemens SWT-3.6 offshore test turbine in the German district of Nordfriesland.
