Title
(EN) OFFSHORE WIND TURBINES AND METHODS OF INSTALLING SAME
(FR) ÉOLIENNES EN MER ET PROCÉDÉ D'INSTALLATION DE CELLES-CI
Abstract
(EN) A method of installing a wind turbine (10) at an offshore location. The wind turbine (10) includes a tower (18) and an energy generating unit (16). The tower (18) is configured to be secured to a transition piece (12, 42). Prior to shipping, the method includes electrically coupling electrical devices and/or systems (52) by cables (54) to energy generating unit (16) or wind turbine tower (18) or a test dummy therefor. The electrical devices and/or systems (52) are configured to be attached to transition piece (12, 42) once the tower (18) is installed. The method includes testing and commissioning the electrical devices and/or systems (52) while electrically coupled to the cables (54). Prior to shipping and after testing and commissioning, the method includes storing the electrical devices and/or systems (52) and attached cables (54) inside the tower (18). The cables (54) are long enough to permit the electrical devices and/or systems (52) to be attached to the transition piece (12, 42) without disconnecting the electrical devices and/or systems (52) from the cables (54).
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé d'installation d'une éolienne (10) dans un emplacement marin. L'éolienne (10) comprend une tour (18) et une unité de production d'énergie (16). La tour (18) est configurée pour être fixée à une pièce de transition (12, 42). Avant l'expédition, le procédé comprend le couplage électrique de dispositifs et/ou de systèmes électriques (52) par des câbles (54) à l'unité de production d'énergie (16) ou à la tour d'éolienne (18) ou à un mannequin de test associé. Les dispositifs et/ou systèmes électriques (52) sont configurés pour être fixés à la pièce de transition (12, 42) une fois que la tour (18) est installée. Le procédé consiste à tester et à mettre en service les dispositifs et/ou systèmes électriques (52) tout en étant électriquement couplés aux câbles (54). Avant l'expédition et après le test et la mise en service, le procédé comprend le stockage des dispositifs et/ou systèmes électriques (52) et des câbles fixés (54) à l'intérieur de la tour (18). Les câbles (54) sont suffisamment longs pour permettre aux dispositifs et/ou systèmes électriques (52) d'être fixés à la pièce de transition (12, 42) sans les déconnecter desdits câbles (54).
