Grid access services
Due to the transformation in today’s energy world, the share of distributed power generation and remote renewable energy sources such as offshore wind farms is growing. The need for solutions that ensure a safe, reliable, and efficient connection of those energy resources to the grid increases. In the continuously evolving world of offshore connections and HVDC and AC offshore platforms, Siemens has taken the early lead – with comprehensive solutions for grid access as well as adequate access services to guarantee an efficient development process and highly reliable operations.
One of the major challenges of the next century will be to meet the unparalleled energy demand in a cost-effective, reliable and sustainable way. That’s where renewable energy such as wind power offers an important lever. To be prepared for what's to come needs a wide range of services from studies, engineering, and installation to operation and maintenance. Our proven grid access services provide you with highly customized and holistic solutions, covering the entire system lifecycle as well as all technology areas of your offshore HVDC and AC platform and onshore substations.
Use our comprehend structure (including subsea) services, cable services, system service solutions as well as general infrastructure services and services for safe operations to reduce risks and protect your energy infrastructure. You benefit from minimized response times in the event of failures or emergencies and increased availability and reliability of your systems. Thanks to lower lifecycle costs, providing you with a basis for sound fiscal planning. And you can enjoy peace of mind in terms of compliance with the more and more complex environmental and safety standards.
With Siemens you profit from a long-term partnership that keeps your offshore grid access available even under the harshest conditions. A broad range of services covers all your needs. Discover some of our highlight services.
Offshore platforms as well as many wind turbines and wind farms are often installed in remote locations. The access is costly, time-consuming, and needs safety precautions. Service technicians must be helicoptered in or they have to come by service vessels, both at considerable cost, just to confirm that the devices are operating properly or to find that the equipment is already damaged.
With our remote services we can safely monitor and diagnose your complete technical infrastructure 24/7, confirming smooth operation without any travel effort, identifying risks or faults and their cause at an early stage, and – if possible – correcting the problem through remote repair. Even if remote repair isn’t possible, the information obtained via remote diagnosis can support the Siemens expert engineers on-site.
A possible failure in the MV/HV switching station could result in a complete loss of profits from your wind park investment. That’s why we take care of your entire electrical infrastructure. And that’s not all: We even offer you support for safe operation and for your general infrastructure.
