Siemens Gamesa wins service contract for offshore wind park in Germany

Trianel Windpark Borkum II, in Germany

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy said it will service offshore wind park Trianel Windpark Borkum II (TWB II) in Germany.

Siemens Gamesa completed the installation of the 32 Senvion 6.33-MW turbines in May 2020. TWB II, located 45 km north of Borkum, has a total output capacity of 200 MW and produces clean energy for around 200,000 households per year. The wind park is owned by 20 municipal utilities and municipal companies from Germany and Switzerland.

“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,” says Irina Lucke, technical managing director of Trianel Windkraftwerk Borkum II GmbH & Co. KG.

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.

The maintenance will start on August 1, 2020. It covers full scope service for five years and includes fixed extension options. The operational base for the service campaigns will be Borkum, says Paulina Hobbs, CEO of the Service Business Unit in North Europe and Middle East at Siemens Gamesa.
