Operation & Maintenance

Approximately 50 service technicians, engineers and nautical personnel work here, because unlike onshore wind turbines those out in the open sea cannot be serviced at just any time during the day or night.

High waves, wind and weather make our service technicians’ task very complex. Therefore short access routes, local partners and well-structured downstream logistics are essential requirements for operating wind farms of this type economically.
