The operational management of the IPS Systems has been transferred from Asset Management to our Systems department.
In recent years the operational management of the IPS systems has been carried out under the responsibility of the Asset Management department, with Eric van Middendorp as your direct point of contact. The Asset Management department has grown rapidly in recent years in both the numbers of IPS systems to be managed and the operational management of wind farms. We have therefore decided to transfer the IPS Management to the systems department. From now on Roy Kerkhof will be your direct point of contact regarding all operational matters related to your IPS system(s). This does not apply to the follow-up of IPS events regarding ice formation.
Roy has been working for Topwind since the 1st of January. Roy being the son of Ruud Kerkhof will support Ruud his team on various topics. In recent years, Roy has gained experience in wind energy at various companies. As a service engineer, he has installed, commissioned, monitored and maintained many wind turbines for the wind turbine manufacturers EWT and Lagerwey. At Lagerwey he has been active as a System Engineer in recent years.
At Topwind, Roy will focus on the organization, implementation and execution of the IPS Asset Management.
