Harnessing the power of wind and converting it to electricity provides a clean, renewable energy for our cities. Wind is a free fuel, as when the turbine is installed, it runs completely on the power of wind - there is no need for additional fuel to run the equipment. The wind farm of the future is an active player in energy storage, balancing energy market and reserve markets. When the city does not need the electricity it generates, it can be stored in batteries. Wind power is clean and sensible electricity for the city - it takes a team of experts who work relentlessly every hour of the year to keep the wind farm running.
Wind farm maintenance involves predictive and preventive maintenance. Specialised knowledge and trainings are required from technicians (called "windtechs") who complete maintenance works accordingly to faults noticed in inspection and scheduled maintenance, to make sure wind turbines are in excellent working order.
Wind turbines require regular inspections of their safety and electrical equipment. These inspections are carried out by trained and qualified experts, as the people who work in windfarms work at dizzying heights of around 250m! Valid national certifications for wind turbine inspections are a prerequisite for performing safety inspections.
The wind farm is an active player through the operation center. The Operation Center is where things are steered and added value is created for the wind farm. The Operations Centre brings together active energy production, experts and the electricity market.
The stable and uninterrupted supply of electricity depends on the successful operation of electrical substations. Electrical substations are a part of our energy grid and ensure the correct, steady amount of power is transmitted and distributed throughout the grid. There are several types of electrical substations, including transmission substations (connecting at least two transmission lines), and distribution substations (transferring power from the transmission system to a distribution area), and each substation plays a distinct and important role in the continuity of supply. Our customers entrust the reliable operation and maintenance of electrical substations to us, and it is our responsibility to ensure the continuity of supply to the homes and facilities which depend on it.
