Gemini Wind Park is connected to the mainland via impressive export cables. These cables allow a multitude of measurement data to be sent
“ashore” for analysis. This is the technical automation of the wind park, and an important part of the park’s management. Read here the interview with SCADA engineer Peter Huiberts.
It is a well-known fact that those who maintain their property well are able to enjoy it for a long time. This motto also applies to a wind park, which should last 20 years. The maintenance teams are managed from within the Gemini organization. Read here the interview with Balance of Plant engineer Guido de Groot.
The electricity generated by Gemini Wind Park is sold daily on the renewable energy market, accompanied by a green certificate. Gemini has concluded an “electricity supply contract” with energy provider PZEM in Zeeland. Each day, the specialists of Gemini make a prediction of how much capacity will be delivered the following day. Read here the interview with asset manager Tom Obdam.
The performance of Gemini Wind Park depends on the technical availability of the 150 turbines and the electrical infrastructure. Day and night, effort is focused on maintaining this availability at a maximum level. But the park must also be maintained, of course. This requires the accurate direction of the management organisation. Read here the interview with Bart Hoefakker, CEO of Gemini Wind Park and responsible for O&M.
The Siemens vessel Windea la Cour is
equipped with a motion-compensated
gangway system (Uptime) to transfer
technicians to the wind turbine.
