Oldenburg. EWE will take care of the low-voltage areas and the sub-systems of the substations in the North Sea wind farms Gode Wind 1 and Gode Wind 2 over the next twelve months. The offshore subsidiary EWE OSS has been awarded the contract for the extensive half-yearly and annual maintenance on both platforms by the operator Ørsted, world market leader in energy generation at sea. So far, the company with its headquarters in Denmark has only used its own service teams."We are very pleased that we were able to convince with the extensive expertise of our team and further strengthen our position as the largest independent service provider for the maintenance and repair of offshore substations with this order," said Arthur Böttcher (Business Development, EWE OSS). "In total, our service teams now take care of nine substations in the German and Dutch North Sea and one on land. This is how we ensure that more than 2,200 megawatts of installed offshore wind power are reliably connected to the electrical grid."

We look forward to a successful collaboration with an experienced service provider”, says Niels Kruse, responsible for the operation of the Gode Wind 1 and 2 wind farms at Ørsted.
