Siemens Wind Service Update: Film Previews New Purpose-Built SOV and Offshore Logistics Concept

Siemens is pleased to announce the release of the new "teaser" film "Taking offshore wind service into new waters" for viewing online at Siemens' Energy Channel and on You Tube.

The next generation of offshore wind power plants will be located farther from shore and will require a unique and flexible logistics solution for efficient service and maintenance. As part of a new and unique integrated concept, the new Service Operation Vessel (SOV) will help to address these challenges and will set a new standard in offshore service operations. Siemens will be the first to provide this multi-faceted offshore logistics concept and will introduce the first purpose-built SOV in 2015.

The teaser film provides a sneak peek of the new SOV and logistics concept. In addition, continual and up-to-date information about the status of the vessel and insights from technicians and Siemens experts can be found on The Energy Blog.

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
