Hatenboer-Water delivers water supply system for transformer platform North Sea windfarm

Posted on 2 June 2017

dws-hatenboer-transformation-platform-770px-1Dutch water technology firm Hatenboer-Water has completed delivery of a customised fresh water system for an unmanned transformer platform of an offshore wind park on the German side of the North Sea.

The project included the design and engineering work, construction and installation of a complete water treatment package.

With this commission, Hatenboer-Water installed its first water treatment system in the unmanned offshore platforms market.

Strict regulations
Unmanned offshore transformer platforms are an important part of an offshore wind farm. This is where all the energy produced by the wind turbines is brought together and converted by transformers to a high voltage transmission.

Although unmanned and operated independently, such platforms require fresh water supply for technical applications, such as oil and water separation, deck cleaning and sanitary facilities including the required emergency shower.

Very short time frame
Hatenboer-Waters' recently installed fresh water supply system meets such requirement. Sales engineer Bart Friso adds: “It is an interesting project since the platform is unmanned and therefore our clients have specific requirements in terms of fresh water".

Friso continues: "The system was engineered, constructed, supplied and made operational within an eight week period. This was all the more challenging considering its robust yet unusually compact frame”.
