The platform for the new wind farm is designed to permanently support O&M personnel for DanTysk with fully equipped individual living quarters that will include general communal and leisure areas, as well as a medical treatment room, technical support space, and offices for management and specialist support staff.

SAM Electronics’ scope of supply for the 2,500-square-metre platform covers provision of low-voltage switchgear and uninterrupted power supplies inclusive of cabling, all internal communications, IT, entertainment amenities and advanced safety facilities consisting of an automated remote control and monitoring system with alarm functions.

Sited 70 km off the isle of Sylt, and one of the first large-scale wind farms to be commissioned in the German sector of the North Sea, the DanTysk venture will comprise 80 wind turbines with a total power output of 288 megawatts. It is expected to provide up to 400,000 homes with green energy.

The DanTysk award marks significant growth opportunities for the L-3 Marine & Power Systems (M&PS) working group led by SAM Electronics, which includes L-3 ELAC Nautik, L-3 FUNA Global Safety Systems and L-3 JOVYATLAS,” said Juergen Meyer-Pepel, Vice-President of SAM Electronics.Collectively, we provide turnkey technical solutions for the development and maintenance of offshore wind energy farms and associated platforms and are very pleased to be leveraging our capabilities to support this latest renewable energy effort.”
