REETEC repositions itself with unique onshore and offshore service portfolio at the wind energy market

01.02.2018 //

  • The REETEC merger with Off-Shore Wind Solutions (OWS) creates an extremely powerful independent competence centre for onshore and offshore services.
  • The Emden Offshore Service Centre (EOSC) offers customers access to a service hub for wind turbine generators of the North Sea plus a highly qualified full maintenance concept.
  • With EDF Energies Nouvelles Group, REETEC benefits from a strong, globally oriented stakeholder with ambitions to drive expansion of wind energy concepts on an international level.

 

Bremen/Germany February 1st, 2018      As an independent full service provider with over 20 years of industry experience, REETEC sees itself as a partner of manufacturers and operators of wind farms on equal footing. Its comprehensive know how is based on practical learning curves – not least due to experience with developing prototypes – which is passed on directly to customers via qualified employees. The former can order services on a stand-alone basis or packaged as a turn-key project.

The OWS integration means a significant expansion of the current range of services from electrical engineering, grid connection, electrical and mechanical assembly of wind turbine generators, operation and maintenance (O&M) services, major component replacement, rotor blade and tower services to aviation obstruction markers.

Compelling combination of competence, technology and infrastructure

Currently, an unparalleled pan-European service hub for major component replacement is being built together with offshore wind farm specialist OWS: the “Emden Offshore Service Centre“ (EOSC), which offers cost efficient full service concepts as well as modular solutions. Medium-term planning will see availability of technology and engineering with a capacity to service 500 wind turbine generators:

  • Own service dock and service hall in which rotor blades with a length of 50-60 meters and entire nacelles can be refurbished.
  • Modern 24/7 control centre, including remote supervision and connection to the predictive maintenance centre of EDF Energies Nouvelles (e-DC).
  • Location on the border of the Netherlands offers a wide deployable radius comprising the entire North Sea.
  • Access to a jack-up service vessel with a 500 tons crane.

"Wind energy is a people’s business. As an "honourable merchant from Bremen", we have gained a lot of trust in the market since 1996 – be that with clients or by now 350 employees. We know all facets and challenges of wind energy services like no other. Obvious proof of this competence is that REETEC/OWS is the first independent service provider to close a 10-year operation and maintenance service contract for the offshore wind farm BARD Offshore 1 (BO1) with the owner and operator Ocean Breeze Energy," says Detlef Lindenau, Managing Partner REETEC.

Seeing the big picture

Since 2007, REETEC is part of the EDF Energies Nouvelles Group (EDF EN) – a global player with ambitious goals for renewable energies according to the CAP 2030 strategy of EDF Group: the installed output of 28.000 MW today shall grow to 50.000 MW by 2030. One of the key drivers will be wind energy. With its technical expertise, REETEC/OWS is an important contributor to advance the industrialisation of the wind industry together with the international strength of the EDF EN group.

REETEC supports SSC Wind for the installation of 54 Senvion offshore wind turbines

Bremen & Wildeshausen/Germany, August 31, 2017 – SSC Wind and REETEC are installing together on behalf of Senvion 54 turbines with a unit capacity of 6.2 MW for the 332 MW offshore wind farm Nordsee One. Both experienced services companies were already on board during the preparatory phase in Bremerhaven. The installation was organized via the base port in Eemshaven. The first Senvion 6.2M126 was installed in Nordsee One early March. Up to now 52 of the 54 Senvion turbines are installed.

Both wind energy service provider SSC Wind from Lower-Saxony and REETEC located in Bremen are working with several teams on the completion of the offshore wind farm. Nordsee One is located 40 kilometres far from the North Sea island Juist.

54 Senvion 6.2M126 were gradually transported from Bremerhaven via Eemshaven to the final destination Nordsee One with water depths between 26 and 29 metres. Value creation of this project during installation phase and in operation is concentrated in the North of Germany. Both wind energy service provider represent together over 35 years of wind industry experience.
