First team set to commence operation and maintenance (O&M) services at Meerwind OWF
CWind, a leading provider of services to the offshore wind industry, has today announced that it has won a contract to provide a team of technicians to support Siemens’ operations and maintenance services at offshore wind farms in Germany. CWind has been supporting Siemens with an array of services in the UK and Germany for several years. The recent contract win with Siemens further expands the company’s growth in the O&M phase, starting with service provision at Meerwind offshore wind farm in the North Sea.
Stefan Marschner, Sales Manager Germany at CWind was pleased with the contract award: “In 2015 Germany added 2,282 MW in offshore wind capacity, a four-fold increase in its grid-connected capacity compared to 2014. Unsurprisingly, the O&M phase has become a key focus area for our clients. I am absolutely delighted that Siemens has decided to expand our remit into their warranty period responsibilities and O&M activities and our teams look forward to supporting them.”
