From wind power to electricity: SPIE realizes the transformer station for Landwind Group’s new wind farm in Gevensleben

  • Landwind Group orders SPIE with the realization of the wind transformer station for its new wind farm in Gevensleben, Lower Saxony.
  • In the last phase, the transformer station will transfer 140 MVA climate-neutral electricity from the wind farm to the overhead line network.
  • As a turnkey project, the order includes delivery, installation and commissioning of all components, as well as connection of the included power transformer.

Data Life, June 20, 2022 – SPIE, the independent European market leader for multi-technical services in energy and communications, is building the transformer station for the new wind farm of the Landwind Group in Lower Saxony as a turnkey project. In awarding the contract, SPIE convinced the new customer with the extensive experience of Berlin’s coupling design team from the High Voltage business unit and the consistent price-performance ratio. Planning began in February this year; commissioning is scheduled for summer 2023.

experience with renewable energy

Most of the wind farms being built today require a transformer station to transport the generated energy to the high voltage overhead line network. The energy conversion from central fossil power plants to several decentralized systems generated from renewable energies such as wind and solar also requires several transformer stations to be built close to the respective wind turbines. For years, SPIE Germany & Central Europe have not only realized and operated “traditional” transformer stations, but also feed-in transformer stations for renewable energy such as wind and solar. “Our team has unique expertise and many years of experience when it comes to transformer stations for renewable energy.”emphasizes Hannes Simon, Berlin Head of the High Voltage Division Business Unit at SPIE Germany & Central Europe: “In the last 25 years, we have planned and built more than 75 transformer stations for renewable energy – and we continue to support some of them in the operational management. “

This portfolio, together with a coherent price-performance ratio, were the decisive factors in the Landwind Group placing its order with SPIE. “As we have high demands on the design of the transformer station and its integration into our systems in terms of control technology and IT security, we are pleased that we have found a partner in SPIE who will map this in our interest with full integration”, adds Alexander Heidebroek, CEO of Landwind Group.

Turnkey: From planning to commissioning

The transformer station in Gevensleben was commissioned with “Turn Key”. “This means that all work steps – from implementation planning according to customer specifications, delivery and assembly to commissioning – are carried out by our team “, explains Hannes Weinreich, Sales Manager Berlin from SPIE’s high voltage division. The planning engineers in the switchyard plan in great detail in advance so that everything fits in place. The protection parameterization, ie. the programming and implementation of the protection parameters are also tested in advance. “It is true that completing a transformer station to the point where it is ready for use means a lot of responsibility, but with our well-established team of experts in all areas, we also live up to it,” e.g.Hannes Simon bows proudly. “The colleagues from SPIE’s City, Networks & Grids division are also helping us with the installation of the 110kV cable,” ends Simon. The commissioning of the transformer station in Gevensleben is planned for the summer of 2023.
