Recurring inspection of 30 wind turbines successfully completed
Varel, 2021-07-27: On assignment from Global Tech I Offshore Wind GmbH, Deutsche WindGuard Inspection has now successfully completed recurring inspections on 30 wind turbines at the off- shore wind farm Global Tech I in the German North Sea.
The contracted scope of services at this wind farm located around 180 kilometres northwest of Bremerhaven, Germany, comprised the inspection of tower and nacelle in accordance with the Standard Design of the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH).
“We are pleased that Global Tech I Offshore Wind GmbH counts on our expertise and has commis- sioned us with the inspection of the technical condition and safety equipment,” says Jan Wallasch, Managing Director of Deutsche WindGuard Inspection, “with the highest level of thoroughness, our experienced offshore experts carefully inspected this year’s inspection scope of 30 turbines and also checked the monitoring and maintenance documentation. For this purpose, the team was stationed on board of the REM Inspector service vessel directly in the wind farm for four weeks in June.”
“The working environment in the offshore wind farm is very dynamic because of sudden weather changes, among other things,” notes Frederik Modes, Head of Operations & Maintenance Wind Turbines Global Tech I Offshore Wind GmbH, “we are pleased that with Deutsche WindGuard we have an inspection body that combines high quality of work and expertise with an agile and prag- matic way of working.”
