JFMS Replaces Gearbox Oil on Thornton Bank Turbines

OrbisEnergy tenant James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS) has completed a gearbox oil change project at the Thornton Bank offshore wind farm in Belgium. 

This is the second such project for JFMS at the offshore wind farm, with the scope including the removal and replacement of gearbox oil on 25 Senvion 6 MW turbines and two 5 MW ones.

JFMS said it had carried out the operations using its Ship-to-Turbine™ system, which helped reduce turbine downtime by some 50% and improved technician utilisation.

The 325 MW Thornton Bank (C-Power) is Belgium’s first offshore wind farm, built in three phases and operational since 2013.

During the first phase, six Senvion 5 MW wind turbines were erected on gravity-based foundations and the phase was commissioned in 2009. Thornton Bank II consists of 24 Senvion 6 MW wind turbines installed on jacket foundations that were fully commissioned at the beginning of 2013. The third phase also comprises 24 Senvion 6 MW wind turbines, which have been producing electricity since July 2013.
