The Green Port Growth Programme has recently helped a Hull firm win a contract to carry out maintenance work on vessels used by Siemens.

Pearson Electrical, specialist electrical engineers with over 30 years of experience in the marine, industrial and hazardous area sectors, signed up to the Green Port Supplier Directory to access new opportunities in the green energy sector. It also utilised funding from the Green Port Growth Programme to achieve vital ISO accreditations.

As a result, Pearson Electrical has just signed a framework agreement with A2SEA, a company which owns and operates some of the wind industry’s most sophisticated vessels and equipment, specially designed for turbine installation.

A2SEA was looking for a Hull-based company to undertake electrical repair work on its turbine installation vessels being used to install Siemens components. Because Pearson Electrical had its BS EN OHSAS 18001: 2007 Occupational Health and Safety accreditation, A2SEA opened talks with the business earlier this year and, in July 2016, signed a framework for work, which begins in January 2017.
