EWE to take care of Gode Wind 1 & 2 substations

EWE has won a contract by Ørsted for maintenance work on the two substations of the Gode Wind 1 and 2 offshore wind project in Germany.

The company’s offshore subsidiary EWE OSS will take care of the low-voltage areas and the sub-systems of the substations over the next twelve months.

“By working with EWE Offshore Service & Solutions, we can further increase the efficiency of the operational management of our Gode Wind 1 and 2 offshore wind farms. We look forward to a successful collaboration with an experienced service provider,” said Niels Kruse, responsible for the operation of the Gode Wind 1 and 2 wind farms at Ørsted.

EWE stated that in total its service teams now take care of nine substations in the German and Dutch North Sea and one on land.

Located some 45km off the coast of Lower Saxony, the 582 MW Gode Wind 1 and 2 has been in operation since 2017.

The project comprises 97 Siemens 6 MW turbines, making it one of the largest offshore wind projects in Germany.
