OIA empowers both renewable and traditional energy sectors with efficient, flexible solutions and world-class project management expertise.

The energy sector is a critical component of OIA’s service portfolio. When Bellville Rodair and OIA combined forces our CEO noted how important this focus is to the new firm. He stated, ”The energy sector faces global challenges, both for traditional and renewable businesses. We’ve searched extensively for the right partner in Europe, and are delighted with the outcome. This acquisition expands our global network by 22 company-owned offices, serving 14 additional countries, which positions OIA to achieve critical mass in project logistics, renewable energy, and oil and gas.”

    Logistics challenge enables client to build the world's heaviest and tallest wind and power infrastructure

    case study spot windCustomer Challenge:

    Our client, a global manufacturer of specialized wind energy installations, took part in a competition to supply some of the highest energy-generating wind power turbines in the world. This contest involved establishing the world’s largest land based windmill at the Hunterston test site in West Scotland, one of the windiest places in Europe. However, the port at Hunterston did not have port facilities to receive windmill parts of this size, so a custom quay had to be built. The customer engaged OIA to help navigate the multiple challenges related to the planning and execution of what essentially was a world first: the transportation of the largest windmill blade parts ever made.
