Ouros is part of Groep Maes, a group of companies with a passion for height and power, founded by the Maes family. Groep Maes was founded in 1976 with Maes Hoogwerkers. This company specializes in the rental of cherry pickers with operator. In the early 2000s, Maes Hoogwerkers saw the need for a complete service for the maintenance of wind turbines and founded Ouros in 2006. Since then, Ouros has been synonym with wind turbines with operations throughout Western Europe.
Ouros is an independent supplier of a complete package for the maintenance of the wind turbine blades. We specialize in the inspection, repair and maintenance of wind turbine blades. Together with Maes Hoogwerkers, Ouros can deploy a wide range of cherry pickers up to a working height of 103m. With more than 10 cherry pickers over 60m, we have the largest range of cherry pickers in Europe.
In 2019, we purchased our first suspended service platform. For this, we worked closely with the supplier WP Systems. Ouros purchased one of their first service platforms and together they are one of the first to bring a service platform to market. Ouros was among the first to offer the innovative way of working with a service platform and with success, because a year later the purchase of a second suspended service platform followed. A service platform has a lighted and heated work area that can also be completely closed, so that the work can be carried out regardless of weather conditions and sunlight. Two service platforms give us maximum flexibility and total independence.
Ouros not only has the necessary state-of-the-art equipment and expertise required to inspect, repair and maintain blades. But since our creation, you can also contact us to rent one of our cherry pickers or suspended service platform with operator so that you can reach the height required with expert equipment to carry out the work yourself.
From the first day technicians step into our office, safety is our top priority. Before starting to work with a cherry picker or a service platform, they receive extensive training. Refresher courses are also given on a regular basis in order to preserve knowledge. Within the company, we work according to the VCA standard, in which safety is an important part. For the wind industry, we ensure that our technicians are trained in accordance with the GWO. The technicians who work regularly in France, have all undergone SST training so that we can also work for our French customers, in compliance with their regulations.
Quality first – Certified Technicians
Wind turbine blades are an important part of your turbine. This is why the quality of the repair or inspection carried out is of great importance. Quality is also part of the VCA standard that we follow, which is why all our blade engineers receive extensive training and regularly have refreshes courses in repairing your blades and using the latest techniques and products. The training of our technicians is done only by known organizations and for the materials we only use recognized suppliers and brands.
Our technicians follow the necessary training and refresher courses every year at recognized bodies. This is the only way we can guarantee the quality of our work.
