Dutch Eneco and Deutsche Windtechnik sign maintenance contract for Prinses Amalia offshore wind farm

Utrecht, Netherlands - Wind farm owner Eneco has assigned Deutsche Windtechnik to perform major component exchanges in the Dutch offshore wind farm Prinses Amalia.

The wind farm is composed of 60 Vestas V80 wind turbines. The contract covers the deployment of highly skilled personnel and the specific tooling and equipment needed to carry out exchanges of major components. During the coming five years, up until the end of the designed lifetime, campaigns will be carried out once or twice a year using a jack-up vessel to replace multiple large components, including gearboxes and generators but also rotor blades if needed.

Deutsche Windtechnik is responsible for all phases of the project, including the preparation of the major component exchange at sea, dismantling of the old component and installation of the new component, the testing phase and the reporting.

Deutsche Windtechnik carried out more than 400 major component exchanges at sea, giving the company a wealth of experience and technical routine in this discipline and ensuring major component exchanges at the highest level of quality.
