Dutch cable services provider WIND, TMA Logistics and Bredenoord have successfully tested the use of green energy to power project equipment, thus eliminating the use of conventional generators.
For a subsea cable storage project, the parties used a 300 kWh battery box as a power reservoir to absorb peak loads during cabling operations, while the battery box charged via the TMA green shore power facility. A conventional backup generator was still present on-site as a back-up, although not required.
Thanks to the commitment of the team, this 20 day operation was run on 100% green energy saving approximately 9,000 kg/9 tonnes of CO² emissions, WIND stated. That’s the equivalent of 1 average car driving on gasoline for 4.5 years.
