Jutland, Denmark — Siemens Energy has secured an order from Dong Energy to supply 111 wind turbines for what will be Denmark’s largest offshore wind power plant.
The 400-megawatt (MW) Anholt Offshore Wind Farm will feature a capacity almost twice that of Horns Rev 2, currently the world’s largest offshore wind farm in operation at 209 MW, Dong Energy said.
When fully operational, the Anholt Offshore Wind Farm project will equal approximately 4 percent of Denmark’s total power consumption. Siemens will supply 111 wind turbines with a capacity of 3.6 MW and a rotor diameter of 120 meters to the Anholt Offshore Wind Farm project.
“The new order for the Anholt Offshore Wind Farm further strengthens our position as the global leader in offshore wind power,” said Wolfgang Dehen, CEO of Siemens Energy. “We’re very proud to once again work with Dong Energy on another high-profile, renewable energy project.”
The wind turbines will be produced at Siemens plant in Brande in Denmark and installed off the east coast of Denmark, 20 km off the northeastern coast of the Jutland peninsula. The wind farm is expected to be commissioned in 2013. The scope of supply for Siemens includes the manufacturing, installation, and commissioning of the wind turbines. Siemens will also provide a service and maintenance agreement for the first five years, with an option of selected services during the second five years.
