Services we provide for Offshore Wind Energy
Complete maintenance of offshore substations
The energy produced by the wind turbines is brought together in the substation and afterwards converted to 150kV. This is necessary to reduce the losses as much as possible when the energy is eventually transported to land. If there is a critical failure in the substation, the whole windfarm would stop producing. The needed security of continuous operation of the substations means that maintenance services have to be held to extremely high quality standards, which is exactly what we guarantee our clients.
ENGIE Offshore Division is a key player in not only the fabrication of OHVS but also in the provision of specialized maintenance and operations services. Over the years, we have gained extensive experience through the maintenance of several substations some of which were built by ourselves. With this vast amount of experience and technical know- how, we are in the position to perform the maintenance of practically every system and sub-system in an offshore substation.
Our substation services include the following:
- Planned routine, semi-annual and annual maintenance
- Unplanned maintenance
- 24/7 Remote Support
