    SWM: First own SWM maintenance team for wind turbines


    September 15, 2022 - Contify Energy News

     

      The SWM workforce has grown – not at the company headquarters in Munich, however, but in Brandenburg, a good 500 kilometers away: the first in-house service team for wind turbines was set up there. The 7 new colleagues are responsible for the service and maintenance of the 81 turbines at the SWM Windpark Havelland. With this step, SWM is also underlining its role as a shaper of the energy transition.

      Key Highlights:

      * The experienced and motivated service team can reach any of the wind turbines in a short time from the newly established service base around 30 kilometers west of Berlin.

      * The Havelland wind farm has a total output of 171 MW and includes 81 Enercon E-70 and E-82 turbines that were put into operation between 2005 and 2009.

      Original Press Release:

      Sept. 13 -- Stadtwerke München GmbH issued the following news release:

      - First own SWM maintenance team for wind turbines

      - 7 colleagues take care of 81 systems in Brandenburg

      The SWM workforce has grown – not at the company headquarters in Munich, however, but in Brandenburg, a good 500 kilometers away: the first in-house service team for wind turbines was set up there. The 7 new colleagues are responsible for the service and maintenance of the 81 turbines at the SWM Windpark Havelland. With this step, SWM is also underlining its role as a shaper of the energy transition.

      After the expiry of long-term maintenance contracts, SWM has now taken the step towards in-house maintenance. The experienced and motivated service team can reach any of the wind turbines in a short time from the newly established service base around 30 kilometers west of Berlin. The remote monitoring and control of the wind turbines is now also carried out by colleagues from SWM's Munich control rooms.

      Helge-Uve Braun, Technical SWM Managing Director: “With this step, we now want to play a more active role in the onshore wind sector, just as we have been doing for other types of generation for a long time. We now cover almost the entire value chain here as well. Our own on-site service team can also react more quickly to error messages.”

      The Havelland wind farm has a total output of 171 MW and includes 81 Enercon E-70 and E-82 turbines that were put into operation between 2005 and 2009.
