Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy will service Germany’s newest offshore wind park Trianel Windpark Borkum II (TWB II).
The installation of the 32 Senvion 6.33-MW turbines was completed in May 2020. TWB II has a total output capacity of 200 MW and produces clean energy for around 200,000 households per year.
“We are pleased to have Siemens Gamesa at our side, an experienced and reliable partner for the servicing and maintenance of the 32 wind turbines. With the full commissioning we have successfully completed the construction phase of the offshore wind park. Now the focus is on the resilient and trouble-free operation of the turbines,” says Irina Lucke, Technical Managing Director of Trianel Windkraftwerk Borkum II.
The contract signed late in June marks a double premiere. It is the first time for Siemens Gamesa to win an offshore service contract for a wind park equipped by another manufacturer and the first time Siemens Gamesa will start servicing Senvion offshore turbines since the acquisition of the onshore service business of Senvion in Europe and its intellectual property in January 2020. Since then, the company has been awarded a number of additional onshore service contracts for Senvion turbines due to its comprehensive knowledge and expertise in servicing Senvion technology. Now the first offshore contract is added to the Siemens Gamesa service fleet.
The maintenance will start on August 1, 2020. It covers full scope service for five years and includes fixed extension options. The operational base for the service campaigns will be Borkum.
