Siemens Gamesa has entered into an agreement with Acteon, to jointly provide a fully integrated offshore wind turbine operations and maintenance (O&M) package for the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind pilot project.
It is the first offshore wind project installed in U.S. Federal waters.
Siemens Gamesa and Acteon will work together to fully optimize the wind turbine service and Balance of Plant O&M work scopes to provide cost effective and integrated asset management services at the 12-MW, two turbine installation. Bundling the above water and subsea Balance of Plant services with the wind turbine service results in a reduction in turbine downtime for planned maintenance activities and a lower cost of energy.
The Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind pilot project is owned by Dominion Energy. It is located approx. 27 miles/43.5 km offshore. Both Siemens Gamesa SWT-6.0-154 offshore wind turbines are safely installed, with first power expected to be generated shortly.
