Technical Controlling

Keeping wind turbines going and going…

Coordination is everything – and it is particularly challenging when taking place offshore because of the number of constraints, directives and participants involved. The technical controlling department ensures that everything runs smoothly at an offshore wind farm. Their services include inspecting and coordinating all service work, communicating and coordinating with authorities and distribution network operators, and reporting to investors.

For everything to run smoothly, the team of experts keeps an eye on all organisational tasks. These include risk and asset management, availability evaluation and the coordination of distribution network operators, authorities and electricity suppliers.

Our expertise and proximity to a project allow us to work out the details of upgrades to offshore wind turbines for performance optimisation and enhancement. Working closely with the site management, control room, marine coordination and technical management, we are able to create the highest degree of transparency and synergy for efficient wind farm operations.
