DONG Energy has awarded Siemens with a contract to upgrade the existing central Infrastructure Control System (ICS) on DONG Energy’s offshore wind farms.
The contract covers hardware and services necessary for upgrading the existing central ICS.
This includes upgrading hardware and configurations (servers, gateways) as well as the central software. Peripheral equipment hardware and software are not part of the procurement.
The purpose is to upgrade the existing wind farm SCADA solution from the original provider of the SCADA solution.
Existing ICS systems must be upgraded to most recent versions to comply with utility best practice within wind farm operations, DONG Energy said.
