The client

A market leading wind turbine manufacturer. 

The challenge 

The client needed to conduct maintenance on one of its wind farms near the coastal city of Yuzhne in Odessa Oblast, south Ukraine. No one from the company had been to the site since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. In the intervening period, the region had endured frequent cruise missile and drone strikes.  

The solution   

The company came to Control Risks’ for help, and our London-based Global Risk Analysis team conducted an in-depth threat analysis, employing Seerist (our AI risk monitoring platform) to research air strikes in the area of the wind farm.  

Control Risks then deployed a consultant to the wind farm to conduct an on-site security survey, assessing:  

  • Access routes into the plant
  • The potential presence of unexploded ordnance
  • Perimeter security
  • Damage to infrastructure
  • Safety features such as the plant’s air-raid shelter and medical facilities

Based on our report, the client decided to send their Global Security Manager to visit the plant to make an internal assessment and to ratify procedures.  

Our team met the Global Security Manager in Chisinau, Moldova. We facilitated their safe travel into Ukraine via the Palanca-Maiaki border crossing point and then to the wind farm itself. While at the plant, the Manager successfully completed their work. We then safely transported them back to Chisinau, Moldova.
