Siemens off shore wind turbine

A2SEA has been awarded a contract by Dong Energy to install 97 Siemens 6 MW wind turbines at the Gode Wind 1 and 2 projects off the North Sea island of Juist, off the coast of Germany.

The Danish offshore wind service company will deploy its Sea Installer installation vessel to carry out the work, which is set to begin in the first half of 2015.

Dong is developing the wind farms, which will have a total capacity of 582 MW, when completed, cost in the region of €2.2bn, and generate enough electricity to power around 600,000 German households.
Siemens off shore wind turbine reports that Siemens was awarded a contract to supply turbines for the projects, in addition to providing five-year services for the turbines.

The Siemens 6 MW turbines each have a 154-meter rotor and the project is expected to be fully commissioned in the second half of 2016.
