Siemens Gamesa will service the offshore wind turbines at the Trianel Windpark Borkum II (TWB II) in Germany, which comprises 32 Senvion 6.33-MW turbines.
The contract, signed in late June, is effective as of 1 August and covers full scope maintenance for five years, including extension options.
The operational base for the service campaigns will be Borkum, Siemens Gamesa said.
The inauguration of the 200 MW offshore wind farm, located some 45 kilometres off the northern coast of the island of Borkum, is planned for spring / summer 2021.
For Siemens Gamesa, it is the first time to win an offshore service contract for a wind farm featuring another manufacturer’s turbines, the company said. Also, it is the first time Siemens Gamesa will start servicing Senvion offshore turbines since the acquisition of Senvion’s onshore service business in Europe and its intellectual property in January 2020.
TWBII is owned by EWE AG (37.5%), a joint venture between the City of Zurich’s electricity company and Fontavis AG (24.51%), and the municipal utility cooperation Trianel together with 17 municipal utilities from Germany (37.99%).
