REpower Managing HSE

Capturing Project Experience
As a direct result of managing HSE for the Ormonde Offshore Wind Farm project, on behalf of the client, InterFace consultant, Marc Anton, was asked to develop an HSE best practice handbook. The objective being to capture all HSE related learnings from the project, previous experience and industry best practice.

The handbook would serve as a formal reference point for all future projects, providing Project Managers, new personnel and Site Manager s with clear guide lines on safety management requirements for the safe installation, mechanical completion, commissioning and service of REpower wind turbines.

Following the departure of the previous Manager and awaiting arrival of a permanent replacement, Marc Anton agreed to operate as acting Head of Offshore HSE for REpower Systems SE. Supported by internal HSE advisors, and operating from the Head office in Hamburg, his responsibilities included:

  • Providing HSE guidance and support to all offshore projects

  • Providing support to the Sales function as part of the tendering process for any potential projects. This has included two projects in the UK and three in Germany.
  • Working closely with Global HSE function to ensure HSE deliverables are aligned.
