Senvion has been awarded a four-year service contract by innogy for the Nordsee Ost offshore windfarm following a competitive tender process.
Senvion has serviced the 48 wind turbines since their installation in 2014. The existing contract has been replaced ahead of schedule by a new service agreement which includes new service concepts such as joint service teams and sea-based services.
Nordsee Ost consists of 48 Senvion 6.2M126 turbines and is 100% owned by innogy. Each turbine has a capacity of 6.15 MW. The windfarm is located 30 km north of Heligoland.
Senvion executive director and chief sales officer David Hardy said, “Nordsee Ost is a challenging offshore project in which Senvion developed many innovative service solutions during its first years of operation.”
innogy SE general manager for Nordsee Ost Karina Würtz said, “A proactive and forward-looking maintenance approach is a key requirement for ensuring cost-effective operations throughout the entire lifecycle of Nordsee Ost.
“The new service contract gives both parties planning security. Implementation of new service concepts will ensure a high level of turbine operational reliability and availability.”
The Offshore Wind Journal Conference in London on 5 February 2019 will address key issues including global market developments, increasing turbine sizes, floating offshore wind and industry regulations.
