Wind for Offshore
Oil & Gas

Benefits of small wind in Offshore & Hazardous Environments

Kingspan Wind has delivered the World’s First and Only ATEX approved small wind turbine.The turbines unique design ensures low maintenance (every 24 months) therefore reducing the requirement for mobilisation to unmanned platforms, which is required on alternative power sources.

This specialist system has been operating successfully in the North Sea for over a decade and with an increasing portfolio around the world in the Oil & Gas sector, our ATEX approved solutions are now being recognised as the leading alternative to diesel generators in specialist sectors around the globe. With Zone 2 Certification our EX approved KW3 is helping to establish safety alongside innovation in the Oil & Gas sector and other Hazardous Environments.

EX approval is complemented with our specialist design consultancy and field support from our team of fully approved engineers and associated partnerships.

Significant OPEX Reduction

The need for energy protection, reducing carbon emissions and a forward thinking approach to producing energy has never been more apparent. Our EX turbines allow for all of this as well as having safety first above all else.

The integration of the EX system will allow for significant OPEX reduction by offsetting runtime of diesel generators which are expensive to operate and maintain whilst at the same time providing a tried and tested source of renewable energy in extreme weather conditions which are regularly encountered offshore and in hazardous environments. Recent installations have demonstrated a 96% OPEX reduction, further highlighting the capability of the Kingspan range.
