Senvion has been awarded a four-year service contract of innogy SE for the Nordsee Ost offshore wind farm following a competitive tender process. Senvion has been responsible for the service of the in total 48 wind turbines since their installation in 2014. The existing contract has been replaced ahead of schedule by a new service agreement which includes the realization of new service concepts such as joint service teams and sea-based services.

Nordsee Ost consists of 48 Senvion 6.2M126 turbines and is 100 percent owned by innogy. Each turbine has an installed capacity of 6.15 MW and a total height of around 160 meters from sea level to the tip of the blade. The wind park Nordsee Ost is located around 30 kilometers north of Heligoland.

David Hardy, Executive Director and CSO of Senvion, said: "Nordsee Ost is a challenging offshore project in which Senvion developed many innovative service solutions during its first years of operation We are very proud that innogy continues their trust in our service maintenance team and has awarded us a follow-up contract ahead of time. We believe it demonstrates the capability of Senvion's service team to provide best-in-class solutions in the best interest of our customers. We want to thank innogy for their trust and are looking forward to continuing our cooperation together these next four years."

Karina Würtz, General Manager at innogy SE for the Offshore Wind farm Nordsee Ost, added: "A proactive and forward-looking maintenance approach is a key requirement for ensuring cost-effective operations throughout the entire lifecycle of our Nordsee Ost offshore wind farm. The new service contract gives both parties planning security for the upcoming years. The implementation of new service concepts and encouraging the exchange between our technicians and the Senvion experts will ensure in the upcoming years a high level of operational reliability and availability of the turbines."

Together with investment partners, innogy owns operational offshore wind farms off the UK, German and Belgian coasts. With involvement in the deployment of in total 2.5 GW of offshore wind capacity, innogy is one of the world's leading operators of offshore wind farms worldwide.
