15 SWT-3.6 wind turbine General layout of SWT-3.6 nacelle Offshore modifications Offshore modifications implemented as part of basic design. Modifications in place also for onshore turbines Arrangements generally according to principles having shown their worth from Vindeby onwards Transformer and HV switchgear in tower bottom Corrosion, outside surface protection to C5M in splash and spray zone Corrosion, inside "closed room system", with climate control (dehumidifiers, salt filters) and cooling via heat exchangers. Opening reduced to a minimum Experience is that offshore operational conditions are generally more benign than onshore due to low turbulence

16 Our answer for advanced turbine technology: Integral Blade without glue joints Siemens Integral Blade The blade is manufactured in a single operation, using a closed process invented by Siemens No glue joints between spars and shells, no weak points, no easy access for water or lightning Combining superior strength with excellent power and noise performance

17 Our answer for advanced turbine technology: SWT-3.0 DD: An alternative to geared turbines Main Data Direct Drive Technology IEC class IA Rotor diameter 101 m Prototype installed 2009 No gear box Reduced number of parts Reduced maintenance costs Synchronous permanent magnet generator No excitation control systems or slip rings High efficiency

18 Our answer for advanced turbine technology: exceptional innovations for the future Hywind Cooperation on technology with Statoil to develop the world's first floating offshore installation In 2009 Siemens installed the first wind turbine for the demonstration unit off the coast of Norway Floating offshore turbines could be installed at sites with greater water depths Source: SWP

19 Our answer for advanced turbine technology: Continuous monitoring to prevent failures Turbine Condition Monitoring Designed to continuously monitor the external and internal state of the wind turbine 24 / 7 precise online vibration measurement on the gearbox, the generator and the main shaft bearings Detect significant deviations from its normal operating condition Prevention of costly breakdowns Reduced service costs Optimized availability and energy generation

20 Siemens does not compromise on safety 1 Stringent safety standards when installing and servicing offshore turbines 2 Continuous safety training and daily assessments 3 program aims at preventing accidents before occurring 4 Low accident frequency despite rough offshore environment

21 Siemens Service partnership approach ensures that project and customer needs are met Unmatched track record for maintaining optimum availability Years of experience in dealing with the unique demands of offshore fleets Flexible service portfolio matching project and owner specific requirements Strong focus on building partnerships

22 Offshore wind will have to contribute significantly to reach many country s targets to increase renewables share in overall energy production For this contribution to happen, a major maturity need, in all parts of the offshore value chain: Increased Supplier integration Standardization Local proximity (installation, service and maintenance) Quality management processes (not only WTG itself)

23 Maturing from pioneering to industrial delivery: UK round 3 major lever for offshore wind industry Round 3 Round three is the major challenge for the offshore industry (number of projects, product development, site characteristics, total share in energy output are all unprecedented so far) In round three the industry will (have to) accelerate its maturity process to reach grid parity UK will become the global competence center for offshore wind

24 Thank you very much for your attention!
