Siemens Gamesa contracted Global Wind Service Benelux (GWS) to support with the first service campaign on Gemini Offshore Wind farm in the Dutch North Sea. Covering 150 SWT-4.0-130 wind turbines it makes it one of the world largest offshore wind farms. On March 15 the first team of GWS technicians mobilised to Gemini Wind Farm to start performing service – all specially trained to handle this specific Siemens Gamesa platform.
“As part of our strategy, GWS is constantly looking to expand our service business together with the OEMs, so being part of the service work on a big project like Gemini is important for us,” said Head of Service Morten Damgaard, GWS.
Once completed, Gemini will be one of the world’s largest offshore wind parks, both in terms of size and production. With a total of 600 MW capacity, Gemini is expected to produce about 2.6 TWh of renewable electricity. Enough to provide over 785,000 Dutch households with renewable electricity.
