Saint Nazaire Cedex, 08-Jun-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — With SeeOs, STX introduces turnkey solutions to the offshore wind market that will reduce energy costs by decreasing delivery time and saving CAPEX and OPEX costs.
SeeOs is a scalable solution for offshore stations. Thanks to its modularity, it can accommodate any power requirement, from 200 to 900 MW, and can be installed on monopile, jacket or floating foundations depending on the site.
The base module design is a fully enclosed 200/300 MW unit which accommodates any OEM MV GIS, Transformer, and HV GIS. Two or three of the base modules can be combined to meet any power requirement up to 900 MW. In addition to scalability, SeeOs can also be customized to fulfill specific client preferences, maintenance strategies, local regulations requirements and installation site distance to shore. These client-specific requirements, such as shunt reactors, harmonic filters, back-up generators, living quarters, workshops or warehouses, will be implemented as add-ons to the base module. With its efficient design, SeeOs decreases delivery time by 20%, reduces project CAPEX costs by 20%, and optimizes operations and maintenance costs up to 20%.
These efficiency gains are a result of the standardized design which uses 80% common features across all modules.
SeeOs, developed by STX, is a best-in-class solution for reliability and availability not only because the modular designs take into account all safety and O&M efficiencies, but they are also fully compliant with the strictest requirements and regulations.
And, with the market constantly changing, our evolutive solutions accommodate current and future offshore technology advancements.
With a view beyond the present market, SeeOs has been designed to accommodate the latest technological developments such as 66kV, future environmental evolutions, and the floating offshore wind market. With its Scalable, Efficient and Evolutive concept, SeeOs is the most field-adapted electrical offshore station in the market today.
