Alstom was awarded substation automation contracts for three of DONG Energy’s offshore wind farms. The systems will be fitted at the Race Bank project off the Norfolk Coast, the Walney Extension in the Irish Sea and at the Burbo Bank Extension in Liverpool Bay. All three projects are currently at various stages of development. All projects will feature Alstom Grid’s DS Agile, the company’s next generation digital control system for smart substations.
Landis+Gyr and DONG Energy, an energy group in Northern Europe, have signed an agreement for a meter data management system (MDMS) which will be integrated into the utility's existing IT architecture. The move comes as Dong Energy prepares to start the replacement of its entire metering infrastructure in the residential sector. Over the next four years, Landis+Gyr will deliver its Gridstream MDMS to DONG Energy. Between 2017 and 2020, DONG Energy will replace its entire residential meter base with smart meters, totaling one million metering end-points.
Siemens received an order for two German offshore wind power plants to supply 97 wind turbines, each with a rating of six MW and a rotor diameter of 154 meters, to the Danish energy provider DONG Energy. The Gode Wind 1 (252 MW) and Gode Wind 2 (330 MW) wind power plants will be erected off the North Sea island of Juist. This will mark the first time that Siemens will be supplying its new six-MW wind turbines for offshore in Germany. Siemens will also service the wind turbines for a period of five years.
DONG Energy, E.ON and Masdar, marked the official inauguration of London Array, a 630-MW operational offshore wind power plant in Margate, Kent. Siemens was responsible for the supply of 175 wind turbines, the grid connections and will provide service under a long-term agreement with Dong Energy.
