Reliability on the high seas
We have been involved in offshore support since the German offshore wind industry was launched in 2009, and have been processing our customers' orders in an extremely professional manner ever since. Our own employees specialised in the offshore sector naturally have all the necessary GWO authorisations and certifications. Our offices situated on the coast guarantee that we can be on site quickly with our own fleet of ships and therefore do not cause standby times for our customers. We can support you with our own aircraft for industrial purposes and for use in scientific work.
Aerial scientific work
We have been able to use our own company aircraft to offer observation flights in both Germany and Europe in the past, and will continue to do so in the future. Among other things, we are authorised to fly at heights of (250ft to 500ft | 76 m to 152 m), in order to ensure good observation visibility for observers. Large bubble windows provide observers on the aircraft with a 180° view from the port and starboard sides.
Observations of individual or multiple bird species, as well as nesting or moulting sites in certain regions are in the foreground here. This always concerns environmental impact assessments in connection with the offshore industry.
Our group-owned IT company and cooperation partner can provide you with corresponding image and video data quickly and precisely, in a variety of formats.
Thanks to our technical equipment and the expertise of our professional pilots, we can also offer orders for customers working in a wide variety of industries throughout Europe.
The safety of all parties involved is the top priority for us on all of our flights, therefore our pilots all have to be in possession of a professional pilot licence (CPL MEP IR frozen ATPL) and undergo flying and character suitability tests twice a year by an inspector (CRE).

Of course, we also use our experience and certifications for consulting work related to your project.
Our Frosio Lvl. III and DIN Certco Lvl. III certified colleagues provide consulting services, prepare reports and carry out inspections.
Shipping fleet and air support
As we have our own ship captains and pilots, we can quickly utilise our respective fleet, both at sea and in the air. This means that we are able to promptly handle even spontaneous orders from our customers. In the Krebs Group of Companies, we are particularly proud the our technical and administrative know-how we have gained since the launch of the offshore wind industry in 2009.

When working at heights, our trained personnel (FISAT/IRATA) are not limited by either the climate or the operation site. We have been able to gain experience at all possible kinds of operation site, such as support structures, gantry cranes, coal power plants, offshore platforms, industrial plants, etc. As we calculate and create our own rope access concepts, we don't need to use expensive scaffolding with our customers. Our competence also results from the fact that we call the airy heights our "home", both on land and on the water.
We are able to perform the following work for you across Europe:
