Liverpool firm Hughes Sub Surface Engineering wins safety accolade


A Liverpool firm has been recognised for its outstanding safety record at the Gwynt y Môr offshore wind farm in Liverpool Bay.

Wind farm operator RWE Innogy UK awarded a ‘zero lost time incidents’ (LTI) accolade to its commercial diving contractor, Hughes Sub Surface Engineering for its incident-free 3,529 dives over a three year span.

RWE project manager Jamie May said: “To achieve a zero LTI in more than 3,500 commercial dives is exemplary.”

The foundation and cable installation work was carried out across Gwynt y Môr’s 160-turbine site off the North Wales coast.

Once operational the wind farm will be capable of generating enough energy to meet the annual needs of around a third of the total number of homes in all of Wales.

Ian Hughes, managing director for Hughes SSE, said: “Both our onshore and offshore teams have worked tirelessly to ensure a safe and successful completion, and I am very proud to say that Hughes SSE has been involved and consistently provided the best possible service from start to finish.”
