Wind energy consultancy Oldbaum Services has joined Achilles UVDB - an online community for the UK utilities sector. Achilles UVDB offers further opportunities to win new contracts and maintain the highest standards. It also enables companies to manage supply chain risk and comply with EU regulations.
It is now a requirement by some of the biggest players in the wind industry to be qualified on Achilles UVDB. By making the grade Oldbaum has demonstrated specific standards which other companies will look for when choosing who they will work with on a project.
Oldbaum will benefit by sharing information on the online platform. This will showcase the companies’ capabilities and track record in the wind sector which covers a decade, and highlight their 100% Health & Safety record. On top of that it will show they can manage a programme on time and on-budget, all with a healthy turnover.
Oldbaum’s Director Monica Griesbaum explained: “We are pleased to join Achilles UVDB and to pass this stringent qualification process. We look forward to all the opportunities which will arise from this.”
About Achilles: Achilles UVDB is used by over 1000 buyers from over 40 UK utility companies to find suitably qualified suppliers. It works to ensure suppliers’ information is accurate via data validation, and desktop and physical audits. Several buying organisations also use the community as an approved mechanism for tendering for contracts above and below EU threshold contracts – streamlining the procurement process.
