A new software solution will soon be making waves in the offshore wind farm market, thanks to a £450,000 investment from venture capitalists.
Marine coordination and offshore operations specialist Green Marine Solutions (GMS) is finalising their ROAM (Real time Operations Asset Management) software after getting the cash injection from Northstar Ventures’ Finance for Business North East Accelerator Fund.
The Boldon-based firm, which provides services to offshore wind farm owners, operators and contractors, developed ROAM to allow clients to manage and track all wind farm assets in real time. Justin Moseley of GMS, said: “We realised that the nature of offshore wind farms was something new due to the fact that each farm is made up of multiple assets – each of which has to be constructed and serviced separately. While oil and gas expertise is applicable in the renewable sector, the logistical issues are far more complex and we saw a market opportunity in setting up a business to combat this.”
