London Array Offshore Wind Farm
Viewpoint For Projects™ delivers security and control for London Array offshore wind farm.
London Array is a proposed offshore wind farm that is designed to help the UK move towards its goal of cutting carbon emissions by 80% by 2050. The company is now entering phase one of construction. London Array Limited represents a consortium of businesses involved developing the project. These businesses are: E.ON, DONG Energy, and Masdar, and between them share a wealth of experience in developing offshore wind projects. When fully complete the project is expected to generate up to 1,000MW of electricity, which is enough to meet the electricity needs of 750,000 homes.
London Array is using Viewpoint For Projects™ throughout the lifetime of the project (from inception and through phase 1, which is currently being constructed). The company will also be using the solution throughout its environmental review phase and into the final phase.
Security and control of sensitive information between all parties involved, including the main three companies and any subcontractors, is key to London Array. This control and security must extend to internal information and all communications that are run through Viewpoint For Projects versus than by email.
Access to the solution is controlled by an administrator who tailors permissions to the needs of each individual and subcontractor. This process also provides the audit trail needed by all parties due to the large financial implications and political nature of the project. Viewpoint For Projects ensures that, if needed, all audit trails can be produced and scrutinized, thus mitigating risk for all parties.
Viewpoint For Projects improves communication, reduces administration, increases productivity and efficiency, and improves performance. The extranet surpassed all London Array’s expectations, allowing the company to provide significant added value to their clients and partners. Using Viewpoint For Projects, the company’s management team can access the latest information 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, from anywhere in the world.
