James Fisher signs agreement with Oil Management and Services – Industry News

James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS), the leading provider of integrated marine services to the offshore renewables industry and part of James Fisher and Sons plc, has signed an exclusive cooperation agreement with Oil Management and Services GmbH (OMS).

The combined and complementary expertise of JFMS and OMS will offer significant benefits to customers in the European offshore renewables industry, with the delivery of full oil lifecycle services, including gearbox and hydraulic oil change, enhancing the safety and performance of offshore wind turbines.

Bruno Martinsen, owner of OMS, commented; “I’m delighted to be working with James Fisher as our oil services partner. This cooperation agreement will enable us to jointly provide turnkey oil management solutions to offshore renewable customers, including oil change, monitoring and maintenance, as well as the safe recycling and disposal of oil.”

As part of this collaboration, JFMS and OMS will jointly promote James Fisher’s innovative Ship-to-Turbine (STT) oil exchange system for the direct extraction and refill of offshore wind gearbox oils directly from a conventional access vessel. STT uses Sage Oil Vac’s vacuum, preheating and filtration technology to transfer the oil from a self-contained deck mounted unit, through umbilical hoses directly eliminating the need to fill and hoist containers via the nacelle crane, delivering further operational efficiencies and reduced costs.
