UK: DONG, Siemens to Maintain Walney 2 for Next 25 Years
The joint DONG Energy and Siemens team will perform the operation and maintenance of the turbines for the next 25 years, and when all the turbines for Walney 2 have been handed over from Construction to Operations later this year, there will be 102 turbines in total.
The dialogue has started regarding the Walney 2 asset transfer from Construction, and we are ready, eager and enthusiastic about receiving the remaining assets.
There are 23 DONG Energy technicians, ie 10 electrical and 13 mechanical engineers, who will be occupying the new facility along with an identical number of Siemens personnel at the end of April.
