An environment we understand
CAN Renewables draws on RSK’s and CAN’s decades of experience in supporting clients’ energy generation requirements, including on- and offshore wind energy generation. In an environment we understand, our goal is to work safely to protect rotor blades, enhance performance and prolong asset life.
The company draws on its experience as an operations and maintenance contractor to offer a collaborative technical approach combining multiblade experience with an understanding of the challenges facing the energy sector.
Safety and well-being come first
Sister company CAN Structures enhances our offer as a leader in the infrastructure sector. The company utilises in-house design engineers to manufacture bespoke access equipment to help deliver work safely and efficiently. Its plant and equipment fabrication facility ensure that the right tools are built for each client’s project. Designs are externally tested and CE marked. A highly qualified team inspects, maintains and recertifies the equipment in-house.
Keeping the blades turning
CAN Renewables recognises the unique challenges of cost efficiency, turbine downtime and energy optimisation that face the renewable energy sector. To allay these concerns with regards to turbine blades, the blade team has the technical credentials that ensure that condition assessment, repair and protection methods deliver blade endurance and conservation.
A global network and capability
We use our varied expertise across landscape planning, design and management to assess the characteristics, history and potential of the site and its landscape context, and to understand the needs of land owners, managers and users. Our clients value our consistently responsive communicative approach and high-quality input based on robust specialist knowledge and experience.
Our teams offer asset management system design and implementation, ISO 55001:2014 certification support and development consent planning, including repowering and life extension.
Condition assessment, reconstruction and protection
Our blade team provide the technical credentials to ensure that assets are well maintained. Once installed, it is critical to ensure that blade damage is categorised, and repair methods are identified and implemented as quickly as possible. To assist clients with these needs, we offer unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and hands-on condition assessments, damage restoration, damage root–cause analysis and reconstruction, protection solutions, performance enhancement, access and isolation, and emergency response services.
