With a total output of 714 MW, the world's most efficient offshore windfarm will be built off the east coast of the UK. The windfarm consists of 102 7MW turbines and an offshore transformer station built on jackets at a water depth of 37 meters.
VCE was commissioned with the planning, installation and commissioning of a metrological condition monitoring system for nine turbines and the transformer station. This includes the installation of numerous sensors in the jackets (foundations), the towers of the turbines and the offshore station, including associated measurement technology, remote data transmission, automated data analysis and web user interface.
