Deutsche Windtechnik Ltd. adds Senvion technology to brand expertise in the UK – five innogy-wind farms commissioned

The UK subsidiary of Deutsche Windtechnik is expanding its national portfolio by providing O&M for five wind farms operated by innogy Renewables UK. Besides Siemens, AN Bonus and NEG Micon, the independent service provider now counts also Senvion turbines as part of its knowledge base in the UK, and hence follows the path of the other Deutsche Windtechnik units.

The UK subsidiary of Deutsche Windtechnik is expanding its national portfolio by providing O&M for five wind farms operated by innogy Renewables UK. Besides Siemens, AN Bonus and NEG Micon, the independent service provider now counts also Senvion turbines as part of its knowledge base in the UK, and hence follows the path of the other Deutsche Windtechnik units. The group serves more than 400 turbines of all Senvion-productions series, onshore as well as offshore.

New contracts enlarge service infrastructure in the UK

The new maintenance contracts in the UK cover a total of 40 Senvion turbines – for MM70, MM82 and MM92 – and run for three years each. The first wind farm to be taken over is Bradwell, located in Essex, and is scheduled to start in August with the remaining four wind farms following in November. The proximity of the wind farms gives Deutsche Windtechnik the opportunity to install cross-park service structures in the northern regions of England including a warehouse and local office. Deutsche Windtechnik Ltd. will employ additional service teams, engineers and supervisors with a broad expertise in Senvion technology, with the first teams already having been employed. With this reinforcement the total number of employees in the UK business unit reaches 100.

Knowledge transfer provides bases for high-quality Senvion service

Billy Stevenson, Managing Director of Deutsche Windtechnik Ltd., is convinced that this milestone will be further proof that the ISP is capable of delivering the highest level of service quality:”Within the Deutsche Windtechnik Group we cover Senvion turbines with a capacity of 590 MW already. We have a very close knowledge transfer with the Training Center and engineering department of Deutsche Windtechnik in Germany, so we guarantee a top level service quality starting with the first day of the term.” After winning the Innogy Supplier Award in the Quality Global category, Deutsche Windtechnik is prepared to underline the standard of high quality in its everyday core competencies.
