The goal is to design a new guiding system for installation of HVAC transformer and develop a new cable-handling concept to reduce LCoE for offshore wind.
Siemens Wind Power is in the process of developing a new HVAC booster turbine concept. It is part of Siemens’ cost reduction strategy in order to bring down the total cost by 40% for an entire offshore wind farm. The costs of installing an offshore booster turbine station including cable handling represent typically 10-15 % of the total costs of deploying an offshore wind park.
Therefore, lowering these costs is one of the key elements to lower the total Levelized Costs of Energy (LCoE). The objective of this project is to design a new guiding system for installation of HVAC booster stations and a cable-handling concept that will make offshore wind parks more cost-efficient.
