RWE deploys new software tool in offshore wind farms



RWE has signed an agreement with the Danish company Systematic to deploy an information management tool on its global fleet of offshore wind farms.

As part of the contract, software company Systematic will provide its cloud-based maritime management tool, called SITE, to manage vessel and personnel information as well as existing operational data from all of RWE’s offshore projects. The tool is designed to help RWE optimize its offshore operations by ensuring that work processes, initiation and safety measures are consistent for its operations and maintenance teams and contractors around the world. .

The new system will first be installed at RWE’s offshore wind projects in the UK, followed by Germany, Denmark and Sweden and with a view to expanding its use more widely in the future. The RWE Humber Gateway and Rampion offshore wind farms have already switched to using SITE.

Claus Byskov, Senior Director of Systematic for Digital Transformation, said: “RWE’s ambition to manage a large amount of operational data with the software solution provided by Systematic corresponds well to our objective of going beyond traditional maritime coordination. We aim to support our clients with innovative solutions for the management of offshore wind operations and to provide the data necessary to increase operational efficiency across a global portfolio of offshore wind farms.
