Portfolio

With our team we are the “minders” for an extensive portfolio. Our hands-on management stretches from the assumption of individual work packages or partial projects to complete management of a major project. Our work is always accompanied by detailed, transparent and especially significant documentation and specific reporting.

We thereby use proven and partially self-developed (project) management methods and templates. 

Management in General

  • General Management

    Keep an eye on the full picture – and, simultaneously, consider, design and implement the many individual working steps together with the stakeholders.

    • Comprehensive planning, monitoring, and implementation of large-scale projects
    • Multi project management
    • Project portfolio management
    • Interim Management
    • Conceptual design of service strategies incl. logistics, material supply, etc.
    • Risk management
    • Support in contract design (EPC, TSA, SMA, ...)

    Together we consistently have the “golden rectangle” (quality, budget, time and customer satisfaction) in our sights – and act accordingly..

  • Process and Interface Management

    Well thought out processes and unambiguously described interfaces ensure an efficient and stable routine in the core organisation and within the project.

    • Efficient design and implementation of processes by means of a sensible subdivision of business processes into process groups and sub-processes
    • Customised staff training
    • Identification of existing stand-alone solutions
    • Centralisation of information pools so that redundant data maintenance can be dispensed of
    • Development of a common database with high reliability
    • Elaboration of existing interfaces, their optimisation, and the concluding proper documentation and clear communication

    Wind Multiplikator designs, trains, documents – and implements optimal processes and interfaces for your project!

  • Commercial Management

    Irrespective of the content of the project, a resilient number base in line with requirements is indispensable for effective and efficient control.

    In order to achieve completion of offshore projects “in time and budget”, meaningful and dependable evaluations based on the amalgamation of the inputs from all sub-projects, right down to daily reporting, must be available for project management before budget planning. These include:

    • Budget preparation on working hours, material, and requirement of external service providers
    • Rolling target/performance comparison
    • Periodical reporting on daily, weekly or monthly basis
    • Asset management
    • Interface between operational units and bookkeeping/controlling
    • Development and implementation of KPIs
    • Offer validation

    The tight interlinking of the operational units with bookkeeping and controlling is essential for efficient control and therefore for the “in time” and “in budget” goals being achieved. Wind Multiplikator creates the processes and tools required – and performs the project management.

  • Supply Chain Management

    Spontaneous trouble shooting, regular maintenance, or installations and retrofits have one thing in common: Spares, material and tools are required for implementation. These are ensured by Supply Chain Management.

    • Accompanying work packages from planning to actual implementation on construction field
    • Involved in procurement management
    • Coordination of information and material flow up to transfer to vessel units and final issue to the technicians for processing on the WT
    • Identify and exploit optimisation potentials by means of monitoring based on key figures, analyses, and regular lessons learned
    • Preparation of requirement specifications for tailored IT solutions

    High flexibility and intensive communication between mainland and construction field, as well as between several vessel units, are the key for smooth operation and to meet all challenges posed by work on large offshore wind parks.

  • Base Harbour Management

    The base harbour is the pivotal point during installation and during the entire service phase.

    • Point of contact and interface to customer, certifier, MWS, port authorities and suppliers
    • Coordination and monitoring of employed specialists and external companies on site
    • Responsible for repair and maintenance of components
    • Preparation of components for shipping and offshore installation
    • Coordination of remedial work, implementation of retrofits on site
    • Inspections and transfer of components to customers and third parties
    • Documentation in accordance with contracts
    • Implementation of ad-hoc lessons learned
    • Development of HSE-conform organization on site

    Coordinating all parties locally in the harbour so that the project is carried out successfully – we do this with “hands-on management“.

  • Site Management

    We multiply the performance of your offshore team on site!

    Organisation, coordination and a great deal of communication are at the forefront with management on site. Depending on the project, this may entail the following:

    • Planning of work on site as well as the organisation of procedures and processes
    • Scheduling of technician teams with regard to time, place, qualifications, etc.
    • Coordination of all units in the field, incl. vessel units and trades in order to guarantee perfect service
    • Interface between onshore and offshore (single point of contact)
    • Prioritisation of activities
    • Documentation and reporting of deployments
    • Consideration of the special circumstances of activities on the high seas and the strain on human and material involved

    The competence and experience on the high seas to make the right decisions at the decisive moment and to also communicate these comprehensibly is one of the strengths of Wind Multiplikator’s experts!
