Owner’s Engineering & Construction Monitoring

When developing offshore wind farms, it is vital to mitigate risks from day one. In doing so, you need to fully understand all the risks associated with the project. For developers stretched and/or without adequate in-house resources available or new to the sector and so without the expertise necessary to develop a project, ABL Group can provide the specialist guidance required during the development and construction phases through to commissioning and generation.

ABL Group company OWC delivers owner’s engineering on fixed and floating projects in Europe, Asia and the US. We can support and ensure your project will run on time and on budget and will meet your objectives. We cover the entire process and can either monitor or consult on a project on your behalf or supplement your own team by being fully involved in all aspects of the project.

We ensure the project is built to your requirements.
