How do you create a specialised center of excellence in offshore wind transport, installation and services that can lift expertise in this vital area for the entire offshore wind industry? One way is to invest in the company that leads the field – and that’s exactly what two of the key players in the evolution of offshore wind energy chose to do.
In July 2009, A2SEA was acquired by DONG Energy. In November 2010 Siemens Wind Power entered as part-owner, while DONG Energy remains the principal shareholder. Together, and working through A2SEA, the two companies have advanced best practices in this crucial area, providing a constant flow of insights and process improvements that can benefit the entire supply chain – manufacturers, utilities and a wide variety of contractors.
DONG Energy is one of the leading energy groups in Northern Europe. For further information, see www.dongenergy.com
Siemens Wind Power is the world’s leading supplier of high-quality offshore wind turbines and related services and is ranked number one in the global offshore market. With robust and reliable wind turbines and highly efficient solutions for power transmission and distribution, Siemens provides clean power across the entire energy conversion chain. www.siemens.com/wind-power
