East Yorkshire-based Boston Energy won Siemens Gamesa’s Strategic Partnership Health and Safety Award, recognising zero incidents had occurred in projects involving the two companies working together.

The award was the only safety-focused award presented during a supplier day for Siemens Gamesa’s top 20 suppliers in its service supply chain, which include Boston Energy.

The company has supported Siemens Gamesa for more than a decade, providing skilled technicians as well as services including site management, procurement and operational support.

Boston Energy has more than 80 technicians employed to support Siemens Gamesa in wind energy projects across the world, working on turbines from 1.3Mw power up to 6Mw.

Boston Energy Operations Director Julian Martin said: “We’re delighted to have received this award from Siemens Gamesa, which underlines our commitment to excellence in safety across all of our operations.

“Over the years we’ve built a strong and trusted relationship with Siemens Gamesa and have grown to become one of their biggest suppliers.

“Working closely together, we’ve delivered a string of significant projects, with zero health and safety incidents. That is testament to the experience, skill and capability of our teams, as well as their total commitment to safety in every aspect of their work.

“We look forward to continuing to support Siemens Gamesa with its global offshore wind energy operations, as part of the critical transition to renewable energy technologies.”

The health and safety award recognised that no time had been lost on projects involving Boston Energy due to incidents and no deviations had to be made from normal operations as a result of a safety issue.

Siemens Gamesa also praised Boston Energy for its proactive safety reporting, which ensures projects are delivered efficiently by skilled technicians, in line with relevant safety procedures.

The company, which has its head office in Beverley, has provided more than 1.2 million hours of technical support to Siemens Gamesa since 2012.

Boston Energy has supported Siemens Gamesa with services including construction, commissioning, service operations and maintenance (O&M), heavy lift and statutory inspections.

In that time, no safety incidents have been reported and no time has been lost on projects as a result.

Boston Energy provides high-quality services to the global wind industry, working onshore and offshore, with experienced teams across the globe working under a one-team approach to offer on-time, in-depth support to reduce turbine downtime and maximise efficiency on site.

In November, it was announced that Boston Energy had helped the world’s largest offshore wind farm, Dogger Bank, generate its first power in a key milestone for the UK’s transition to net zero.
