Offshore Windfarm Generator Sets
For offshore windfarm applications, there are typically two types of set required.
During construction phase small sub 100kVA units may be required for auxiliary power. Post construction, these units often remain on the pedestal for short term communications back up.
As offshore wind farm developments increase in scale, we are also seeing a requirement for larger sub station or hub platform emergency or standby generators as recently witnessed in the supply of a 400kVA set for a UK offshore windfarm. See Project.
The same engineering content which is used to design offshore oil and gas or marine type generators is now being adopted by the windfarm operators.
