ZITON Completes Three Maintenance Projects at UK Offshore Wind Farms

Denmark-based offshore wind O&M service provider ZITON completed three maintenance projects at UK offshore wind farms this month.

The company’s team on board its jack-up vessel Wind Enterprise has exchanged gearboxes on two out of the 30 Senvion (REpower) 5 MW wind turbines at the Ormonde offshore wind farm.

The work was carried out in mid-August with both gearboxes exchanged within four days.

At the beginning of this month, ZITON also completed a full-scope gearbox exchange at the Teesside Wind Farm (also knows as Redcar Wind Farm), which features 27 Siemens Gamesa 2.3 MW turbines.

“This specific type of gearbox is notorious for minimum tolerances, hence requires a very experienced team to guarantee successful exchange”, the company said via social media.

In addition, ZITON reported at the beginning of August that it completed a blade exchange on the Kentish Flats offshore wind farm, which comprises 30 Vestas 3 MW wind turbines.
