Siemens Energy is supplying its control system to an offshore wind farm for the first time. The system which has already been established in conventional power plants, will be the “brain” of the 900-megawatt EnBW He Dreiht wind farm being built approximately 90 kilometers northwest of the German North Sea coast off the island of Borkum. Along with the control technology for switchgear and secondary systems, Siemens Energy is supplying the central IT network, including cybersecurity solutions, and has also signed a long-term service agreement with EnBW.
