Eneco, owner of the Princess Amalia Wind Farm, has selected Siemens Gamesa as the supplier for gearbox refurbishment. For the next five years, the company will maintain and refurbish the gearboxes of 60 Vestas V80-2.0MW wind turbines. The Princess Amalia Wind Farm was commissioned in 2008 and offers a total capacity of 120 MW.
This contract is part of a number of new management and maintenance contracts for the Dutch offshore wind power plant. The scope of the work includes the initial supply of up to four gearboxes of the type ZF-EH804, fully equipped with all auxiliaries. After the first exchange campaign, which is expected during Q2 2018, the removed gearboxes will be handed over to Siemens Gamesa facilities to be fully refurbished. The overhauled set of gearboxes will be supplied for exchange in the next step of the campaign. A dedicated repair team for the project contributes a repair capacity of up to four gearboxes within 10 weeks. All of the work will be executed in Spain. The 120-MW “Princess Amalia” wind farm, operational since 2008, is located 23 km off the coast of Ijmuiden, the Netherlands.
