Providing medical care to workers on offshore wind farms is an important component of wind farm safety. A colleague who does not feel well can be a safety risk. In addition to work-related accidents, illnesses can occur at any time, from a slight cold to strokes or heart attacks or even major trauma. But medical infrastructure like that on land is not readily available in offshore work environments.

While previous concepts only offered individual modules, WINDEAcare provides a holistic and practical medical care concept, all from a single source.

We provide appropriate assistance from minor ailments that can be diagnosed and treated via telemedicine to life-threatening injuries and difficult rescue situations. Numerous experienced and established service providers have come together in close partnership to provide this comprehensive range of services. We offer a unique, interdisciplinary combination of expertise in the fields of medicine, emergency services, nautical sciences, aviation and wind energy.
