Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy

Investigate the sustainable practices of the Operations & Maintenance team of an offshore windfarm to see what activities they are doing sustainably and what others they could improve.

Sustainable Maintenance of an Offshore Windfarm

Offshore Wind Farms are all about creating sustainable electricity to help meet the UK’s targets for Net Zero carbon emissions, but how green are they to run?

The East Anglia One Offshore Windfarm’s Operation and Maintenance team have made changes to make their daily operations more sustainable. However, there is more they could be doing.

The aim of this project will be to investigate how sustainable the team’s activities are and what could be done to improve their operations. This will involve investigating the current practices of the team, including data collection and seeing how the team worker. Then, you will do some research into more sustainable ways to work. These learnings would be shared with the wider Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy Operations & Maintenance teams across the Northern Europe and Middle East regions.
