Siemens Gamesa has entered into an agreement with Acteon to jointly provide a fully integrated offshore wind turbine operations and maintenance (O&M) package for the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind pilot project.
Siemens Gamesa will utilise its own technicians for performing the above water Balance of Plant inspections, while Acteon will support the subsea general visual, marine growth and anode inspection. This will utilise a low-logistics inspection class remotely operated vehicle (Seatronics VALOR) providing a complete overview of the structural integrity of the asset.
The Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind pilot project is owned by Dominion Energy. It is located approx. 27 miles offshore. Both Siemens Gamesa SWT-6.0-154 offshore wind turbines are installed, with first power expected to be generated shortly.
