Siemens Wind Power Receives Major Order  

from Danish DONG Energy

2013.11.25

Siemens has struck a 2.2 billion euro deal with Denmark’s Dong Energy for the construction of two major wind farms off the German coast that will be able to supply around 600,000 households. The contract is for the biggest turbine models ever installed.

Siemens Wind Power, headquartered in Brande, Denmark, will deliver 97 wind turbines with a rating of six megawatts (MW)each and a rotor diameter of 154 meters. The total capacity for the Gode Wind 1 and Gode Wind 2 wind farms installed nu DONG is 582 megawatts.

This is the first time that Siemens will be supplying its new six-megawatt wind turbines for offshore in Germany. Siemens will also service the wind turbines for a period of five years. Construction is planned to begin in the first half of 2015.

- "Only at sea can wind projects of a performance category equivalent to major power plants be erected in Germany. Offshore wind energy will also act as a stabilization factor in the German energy mix. Offshore wind power plants produce electricity on more than 340 days per year, thanks to stable wind conditions at sea”, said Markus Tacke, CEO of the Wind Power Division of the Siemens Energy Sector.-

- "Despite the fact that offshore wind energy is quite a new technology, we are making great advances. In the coming ten years we intend to reduce costs by up to 40 percent," he added.
