of converter platforms

Wind energy production and distribution with navigation, radio and communication technology as well as environmental sensors

With the Energiewende, Germany has set itself the goal of increasing the share of renewable energies in electricity consumption to 80% by 2050. Since the successful start-up of the first commercial offshore wind farm alpha ventus in 2010, this sector has made a significant progress. In the meantime, so-called converter platforms with an electrical output of up to 900 MW collect the electricity generated by high-power turbines in the coastal area and convert them into direct current for low-loss transmission over long distances on land. The infrastructure of such and similar installations places very high demands on availability and reliability in both manned and unmanned operations.

 

MAR designs, supplies, installs, operates the systems and realizes ongoing maintenance and service.
