ENERTRAG Operation is positive about last year’s efforts with regard to the defined growth and expansion strategy towards the French market. In 2021, ENERTRAG Operation opened a remote monitoring center in Amiens, France, north of Paris, to supervise French wind farms. Previously, the French parks were supervised from Germany. The new structure offers numerous advantages, including shorter travel times for technicians and a more fluid and transparent information chain in the domestic language.
Local remote monitoring center in Amiens allows more specific on-site support for wind farms. “With our inspection teams located in France, we can respond more quickly to customer requirements and find the appropriate solutions,” explains Michael Dahm, Managing Director of ENERTRAG Operation.
Regionally well placed in the Haut-de-France region, where ENERTRAG Operation supervises most of their wind parks, the new remote monitoring center enables the technicians to check the status of the respective machines any time from remote. All machines are equipped with the Powersystem® operations management software which was developed by ENERTRAG itself and allows the supervisors to track live plant parameters. The teams on-site are also able to take care of the inspection of the wind turbines and make sure all maintenance intervals are kept. In total, around 200 wind turbines are currently monitored from the remote monitoring center in Amiens.
With their long term experience in this field, our 12 qualified technicians and operators put all their expertise together to serve our customers with the best possible results.
They are able to monitor all turbines in real time and are the direct contacts for manufacturers and customers during maintenance actions. In 2021, the French colleagues carried out around 460 inspections – almost half of them using drone technology.
ENERTRAG Operation is ISO 9001 certified. All services carried out by ENERTRAG Operation are carried out in strict compliance with the latest directives and regulations.
The operations management team in France now comprises 12 employees. The team has the capacity for both existing and new customers. In the midterm, photovoltaic and hydrogen services will be part of the energy service provider’s portfolio, said the company statement.
