Annual Balance Sheet: Availability at Nordergründe Offshore Wind Farm Higher Than Contractually Guaranteed
Bremen, Germany - Following the insolvency of turbine manufacturer Senvion in April 2020, Deutsche Windtechnik initially temporarily took over the machine service for the 18 Senvion 6.2M 126 wind turbines (WTGs) at the Nordergründe offshore wind farm. In September 2020, the company was then able to prevail in the tendering process.
Deutsche Windtechnik was awarded the full-service contract by the investors and operators of the Nordergründe offshore wind farm, which include wind farm planner / project developer and operator Wpd, as well as John Laing Group PLC and Gothaer Insurance Group. "One-stop support in terms of operations management as well as maintenance and repair of the entire wind farm has already proven to be very beneficial. We see this as a model for the future, also with regard to the operating phase after the end of the fixed feed-in tariff," says the managing director of the operating company Eckhard Stürtz, drawing a positive balance.
Matthias Brandt, CEO of Deutsche Windtechnik, emphasizes the experience of Deutsche Windtechnik's technicians in the various offshore disciplines. "This enables us to enhance our service concept with a high degree of flexibility. We pay particular attention to the downtimes of the turbines and the logistics," says Brandt. As an experienced specialist for Senvion technologies, Deutsche Windtechnik has all of the necessary onshore and offshore components at their disposal, including large components, he added.
