A contractor working on board a construction vessel  on the Offshore Wind Farm had been taken ill and required a medical evacuation for assessment by paramedics.

The man was assessed at the scene by the windfarm’s own Emergency Response Team before being transferred to the RNLI Rhyl Lifeboat and their casualty care crew.

The transfer of the male between the support vessel and the lifeboat was carried out smoothly, and the lifeboat crew ferried the man to shore to be handed over to paramedics at 9.45am.
