Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy will service Germany’s newest offshore wind park Trianel Windpark Borkum II (TWB II).
The contract signed 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.
“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,” said Irina Lucke, technical managing director of TWB II. “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,” she added.
The installation of the 32 Senvion 6.33-MW turbines was completed in May 2020. Located 45km north of Borkum, TWB II has a total output capacity of 200 MW and produces clean energy for around 200,000 households per year.
The maintenance will start on 1 August 2020. It covers full scope service for five years and includes fixed extension options.
