INNOVATIVE PROJECTS for the German wind market greenwind control: INDEPENDENT = INNOVATIVE The company Green Wind has developed the state-of-the-art 24/7 control center greenwind control, which, according to General Manager Manuel Lasse, owes its success primarily to its independence in conjunction with state-of-the-art technology. As a result of its engagement by General Elektrics to assume responsibility for maintenance management of the DolWin3 offshore platform as one of two partners of ARGE O+M, Green Wind Offshore GmbH has entered a new level of technical operations management. Within the scope of the 900 MW project, the company invested in the design and construction of a stateof-the-art 24/7 control center that is now also available to other interested parties. A second major contract from Siemens Gamesa has proven to Green Wind General Manager Manuel Lasse that an independent control center like greenwind control meets a need in the industry. On- and Offshore According to Lasse, greenwind control’s independence is what makes it truly special. There are only very few companies that offer such sophisticated technology for the 24/7 monitoring of on- and offshore wind turbines. But in contrast to large suppliers, Green Wind is not affiliated with or dependent on any manufacturers, operators, service providers, or investors: “This allows us to speak with everyone as equals – from the operations manager to the major energy supplier – without any conflicts of interest.” Digital Twin for “Albatros” One of the company’s major clients is Siemens Gamesa, which is installing 16 SWT-7.0-154 offshore turbines and the offshore transformer module with grid interfaces in EnBW’s “Albatros” offshore wind farm. Green Wind Offshore GmbH was hired to organize and supervise all of the switching operations needed for the initial operation of the OTM and the wind turbines until the end of 2019. In addition, the entire grid structure has been reproduced as a digital twin in the control center software used by greenwind control, and is configured for both manual and optional remote control. 6 Wind Industry in Germany

Advertorial “In addition to all of the technical components and an exceptionally well-trained team, we also offer our customers something special – our independence.” Manuel Lasse, General Manager of Green Wind Control Center Sharing But Lasse also believes the control center can be used in other ways. One of his main concepts is called control center sharing. This means that operators and independent service providers can use Green Wind technology, including 24/7 personnel, which would in turn allow them to offer their customers 24/7 monitoring and thus faster response times. This means that small and large onshore and offshore service providers can benefit from the system without having to bear the acquisition costs. On the other hand, Green Wind can offer independent investor consulting services for complex onshore and offshore investments. This includes reviewing existing maintenance concepts to ensure that they are being carried out in accordance with the contract. Another option, according to Lasse, is to support large energy suppliers in setting up “monitoring and control systems” for infrastructure and personnel. Two Connected Systems All of this demands high safety standards, and one way to ensure compliance is by linking two control center systems that can replace each other if necessary. In addition, Green Wind stores all the data on servers in Germany and regularly backs it up to locally isolated and secure storage systems. To secure the systems, Green Wind relies on redundant and monitored networks consisting of select industrial-grade components. The greenwind control infrastructure is ISO 27001 certified. Project overview Project overview Initiator Green Wind Implemented by Green Wind Operations GmbH and Green Wind Offshore GmbH Facts and General grid control, monitoring and figures management of substations, HVDC platforms, and onshore and offshore wind farms. Coordination and planning of service and maintenance. Switching authorisation up to 170 kV. Project status In operation since June 2018 Location Berlin Conclusion greenwind control from Green Wind is one of the few 24/7 control centers that combines sophisticated technology and independence and can therefore be used by both small and large onshore and offshore service providers. Data security is guaranteed by the linking of two control center systems, among other measures. The infrastructure is ISO 27001 certified.
