CWind Halfway There on Wikinger
Colchester-based offshore services provider CWind has reached the halfway point on a 15-month project to provide a range of secondary works at Iberdrola’s 350MW Wikinger offshore wind farm in the German Baltic Sea.
CWind’s team of technicians will continue to perform tasks such as removal, replacement and repair of equipment and low voltage electrical works, wiring and testing according to BGV A3 (the official German regulation applied to electrical installations and equipment) including the fall arrest system and navigation equipment, until the works are internally handed over to Iberdola’s operations & maintenance team.
The project is scheduled to be complete in November 2017.
“We are pleased with the progress on our work at the Wikinger offshore wind farm, and are proud to be working on our first contract with Iberdrola, a global leader in wind energy,” Lee Andrews, Managing Director for Power at CWind, said.
”This contract builds on our strong track record in supporting wind farms in the UK and Europe, including West of Duddon Sands, Westermost Rough and Humber Gateway. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with Iberdrola.”
Once complete, the wind farm will comprise 70 Adwen 5MW wind turbine generators and a single offshore substation.
The EUR 1.4 billion Wikinger wind farm is scheduled to be operational by the end of this year.
