Wind energy – maintenance
Deutsche Windtechnik (DWT) has established a new country unit to provide maintenance for offshore wind farms in the UK.
Deutsche Windtechnik Offshore began its work on August 1st and is managed as an independent company.
It cooperates closely with the onshore country unit, which was established in 2016. The UK is at the top of the list of global offshore markets and is planning long-term investments in further expansion of offshore wind energy. Deutsche Windtechnik’s entry into the offshore market as a high-performance, independent full-service provider with many years of offshore experience will increase the competition in the British service sector, and this will have a positive effect on British offshore wind energy as a whole.
DWT has successfully carried out a number of individual offshore projects in the UK since 2019. Many of these projects involved the replacement of major components as well as work related to specialist services, such as endoscope inspections of drive train components. “Our goal in establishing this company is to bring the advantages of our comprehensive, flexible maintenance expertise to the British offshore market and to get closer to local customers and the offshore wind farms off the British coast,” said Carl Rasmus Richardsen, Managing Director of Deutsche Windtechnik Offshore.
“The expansion goals of the British offshore market are unique in the world. Our advantage is that we will benefit in many ways from our extensive experience in the offshore markets of Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands and Taiwan while building up our new offshore unit in the UK. We are confident that our flexible service concepts will also bring significant added value to operators and investors who are active in the UK.”
