The Eye of the Needle for Feeding Into the Grid
The substation is the most important structure in an offshore wind farm. This is where all the energy produced by the wind turbines is brought together and converted by transformers to a high voltage transmission of 155kV. This is necessary to ensure that as little energy as possible is lost during transmission over long distances to the next onshore grid node.
If a technical fault occurs on the substation platform then all wind turbines in the offshore wind farm will fail to function. This means that maintenance and repairs services must meet extremely meticulous and high quality standards.
Both in terms of personnel and logistics, Deutsche Windtechnik is in a position to carry out virtually every task needed on the substation platform. Our service portfolio ranges from construction and production monitoring to all other maintenance measures, from a complete data monitoring system to essential testing and expert reports.
The following tasks may be carried out as part of technical management:
The range of activities to be employed can be expanded to match demands within the scope of our service portfolio.
For the most part, maintenance includes inspection, maintenance and repair tasks. See below for a brief overview of the range of services we offer:
You can find more information at onshore maintenance.
Our programme of complete data monitoring forms one of the corner stones of our service portfolio. See below for a brief overview:
