Offshore wind power is playing an increasingly important role as an indispensable part of the regenerative energy mix.
More than fifteen wind farms in the North Sea have been connected to the land network with the support of Hamburg’s Marine Service up to 2020.
Providing engineering services for HVDC converter platforms is one of Marine Service`s core competencies and due to its multi-discipline competence, Marine Service is a reliable and highly skilled partner.
We provide expertise in design, engineering and review of structures and support systems as well as associated technical services. Side by side with platform owners, operators and builders, Marine Service provides support from specification development, risk assessments and safety studies up to plan approval and construction supervision.
Deep sea converter platforms
Offshore wind parks generate their green energy in the form of alternating voltage. By means of special converter platforms, this voltage is converted to direct current. This cuts down the losses in energy transmission through the power lines running across the seabed.
For the efficient use of this ‘green energy’ generated through offshore wind parks, Marine Service has developed many special solutions and services for the installation of converter platforms. We assist you with the design concept, preparation of specifications, review of design drawings, approval procedures and with project management and supervision of the offshore installations and the technical platform management for such projects. We also plan all maintenance activities to ensure the smooth operation of the platform.
Supervision of offshore installations
After the construction of the platform, Marine Service also supervises the installation of the topside on the base frame. We also manage its operation and maintenance, on request.
