in Denmark

2011.12.21

Siemens Wind Power in Aalborg starts production of the longest wind blades ever seen.

A historic record has been set in Denmark, as Siemens Wind Power in Aalborg, northern Denmark, recently kicked off its production of the longest wind blades ever seen by the world.

The global supplier of wind power has started to produce wind blades that are no less than 75 meters long, they each weigh 20 tons, and once placed on a turbine, the diameter of the circle created by the spinning rotor blades will be 154 meters. Once in function, a wind turbine will be able to deliver enough electricity to supply 5.000 households or a small provincial town, writes the regional daily newspaper Nordjyske.

The blades will be used for a newly launched Siemens 6-megawatt turbine that is being tested in the new national Danish test center Østerild in Thy, also northern Denmark.

The long wind blades made in Aalborg will be used for turbines placed all over the world because Siemens Wind Power has chosen Aalborg as the only production place.

In 2011-2012 Siemens Wind Power plans to invest one billion kroner in Denmark in building new centres for research and development, expand production facilities and create new offices for the growing number of staff in Denmark.
