Endiprev performance on Merkur Offshore Wind Farm
Merkur Offshore Wind Farm is one of the biggest offshore wind farms in Germany. Endiprev was involved in the project since its beginning due to its extensive knowledge of the offshore wind turbines.
Located 28 miles north of the Borkum Islands, the Merkur Offshore Wind Farm is a project constructed and operated by GE Renewable Energy, in a joint venture with Partners Group, InfraRed Capital Partners, DEME Concessions and Coriolis. This wind farm, with 66 GE Haliade H150-6MW, has a total capacity of 396MW. It is capable of producing 1,750GWh of electricity per year, which means it can produce enough energy to power up to 500,000 local households.
Endiprev contributed to the Merkur Offshore Wind Farm on all phases of the project. The company selected a team of Electrical Engineers and Field Technicians to support the engineering documentation, factory assembly, validation and verification works, onshore punch lists, commissioning, and O&M (Operations & Maintenance). During the commissioning process, Endiprev’s team was composed of more than 60 engineers and technicians onsite, living on the Service Operations Vessel on a 14 days’ work and 14 days’ rest rotation scheme.
Our teams had been gradually preparing for the Merkur Wind Farm Commissioning by going through intensive training and thorough preparation on the GE Haliade H150 components and commissioning procedures. At the end of the project, the team had amazing feedback, and it was recognized as having a good performance by our customer. Endiprev is, at this point, the only field services provider in the world with an offshore track record in three continents.
