Offshore wind: Spica Technology is to deliver 32 remote maintenance platforms that are to be installed on the 32 V164 8.0 MW offshore wind turbines at the operating offshore wind farm Burbo Bank Extension in Liverpool Bay north of the North Wirral coast in England.

The remote maintenance platform is an add-on data collection system that has the purpose to measure and collect big data from the turbines in order to analyse data and trends over time to optimize levelized cost of energy (LCoE). The systems are to be installed during the second quarter of 2019. With an open and honest dialogue, both companies are working hard to reach the ambitious deadline for the installation of the solution.

The remote maintenance platform is a stand-alone data collection system solution which is designed and produced by Spica Technology based on the requirements from Ørsted. Before the installation at Burbo Bank Extension, Spica Technology is also involved in testing the software which is delivered by Beckhoff Automation.
Burbo Bank Extension is the first project in the world to use MHI Vestas V164 8.0 MW turbines – newly developed turbines which have more than double the capacity than the 3.6 MW turbines used at the neighbouring offshore wind farm Burbo Bank.
