CWind Springs into Action at Race Bank Offshore Wind Farm

Colchester-based offshore services provider CWind has recently carried out urgent inspection and repair projects on the 576MW Race Bank offshore wind farm currently under construction off Norfolk, UK.

CWind was tasked with undertaking an urgent inspection job, a separate generator repair, and a rope access team mobilisation at a few hours’ notice, the company said.

DONG Energy’s Race Bank, situated some 27km off the coast of Norfolk, consists of 91 Siemens 6MW turbines and two substations. The first turbine was installed at the site mid-May.

Construction of Race Bank is being managed from DONG Energy’s construction base in the Grimsby Fish Docks.

The wind farm is scheduled to be fully operational in 2018.
