Gallery: DONG Energy’s Technicians Flying to Work

A thousand hoisting operations from helicopters to wind turbines have been carried out so far at DONG Energy’s offshore wind farms, the offshore wind developer said via social media.

“The distances to our offshore wind farms are increasing, and flying to work is becoming reality for many of our technicians who maintain our wind farms in the UK,” DONG Energy said.

According to EWEA’s (now WindEurope) statistics for 2015, DONG Energy holds the position as the biggest owner of offshore wind power in Europe with 15.6% of cumulative installations at the end of 2015.

The company has over 20 offshore wind projects in its portfolio, including those in operation, under construction or in development.
