As operator, Statoil has awarded two contracts to Siemens plc for the engineering, supply, assembly, commissioning and service of 67 wind turbine generators for the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm project.
The wind turbine generator (WTG) supply contract will cover engineering, procurement, assembly and offshore commissioning. Each turbine (6.0 MW) consists of a tower section, a nacelle and three separate rotor blades (154-metre rotor diameter).
The engineering work will commence in January 2014 and contributes to design development of the project’s design work for foundations and electrical infrastructure. The first batch of turbines shall be ready for load out and installation January 2017.
The service contract will cover operations and maintenance of the WTGs through the first two years after installation is completed, followed by three years where Siemens plc provides Dudgeon with technicians and other agreed services.
