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. The Omnivise T3000 SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system is a higher-level control system that integrates the automation of switchgear and many secondary systems and also establishes the interface to the wind farm controller. This integrated solution for the wind farm enables EnBW to respond quickly to changes in power demand so that the facility can produce electricity flexibly. Omnivise T3000 is certified under the IEC 62443 cybersecurity standard, one of the leading standards for IT security. It also includes the IT infrastructure for connecting the secondary systems according to the German BSI Kritis regulation.To guarantee reliable operation under all environmental conditions as well as conformity with maritime electrical engineering standards, Siemens Energy will use components that meet the special requirements of the offshore sector. The cybersecurity solution will ensure that the plant meets the legal requirements for critical infrastructure. Due to its size, the He Dreiht offshore wind farm is subject to special guidelines from the Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (German Federal Office for Information Security). The offshore wind farm is expected to begin operation in 2025. Siemens Energy received an order back in August 2020 from the grid operator TenneT to supply the high-voltage direct-current transmission technology. This system ensures the low-loss transmission of power to shore. During the wind farm’s minimum operating period of 25 years, Siemens Energy will support the operator EnBW with automation components, software solutions, and cybersecurity. The corresponding service activities will ensure that the control system continues to operate smoothly over the long term.
