TenneT Gauging Interest in Offshore Maintenance Cooperation Model


TenneT is taking the initiative to jointly house offshore infrastructure management and maintenance services in a new model, with the transmission system operator sharing information and ideas with wind farm and oil and gas operators, to gauge their interest in a collaborative system.

The growth in offshore infrastructure development creates a need for O&M services, the company says, adding that materials, maintenance and management are scarce.

“We notice that many parties are facing the same challenges as TenneT, which is why we want to investigate whether we can develop a new cooperation model,” says TenneT’s Erik Hiensch. “As an offshore transmission system operator, we play an important role in the development of offshore infrastructure and want to take the lead in this initiative.”
