Deutsche Windtechnik achieves a new milestone: Maintenance for Siemens SWT-3.6 at the Riffgat offshore wind farm

Bremen, Germany - Deutsche Windtechnik has been awarded the contract to provide maintenance for 30 Siemens SWT-3.6-120 wind turbines at the Riffgat offshore wind farm as part of an EU tender procedure that was initiated by EWE Offshore Service und Solutions GmbH (EWE OSS).

The contract begins in June 2019. The two companies have been working together closely for more than two years at the offshore wind farm alpha ventus, and their cooperation will now continue at the Riffgat offshore wind farm as a result of the EU tender. The contract includes basic maintenance, troubleshooting, remote fault elimination, spare parts management, maintenance of safety equipment and testing of electrical equipment in accordance with DGUV V3.

This makes Deutsche Windtechnik, which operates independently from manufacturers, the first ISP (Independent Service Provider) in the world to provide maintenance for Siemens SWT-3.6 turbines.

The Riffgat offshore wind farm, which was built by EWE in 2013, is the first commercially operated wind farm in the German North Sea. In addition to its own offshore activities, EWE also makes its expertise in the construction and operation of offshore wind farms and substations available to international customers.
