Siemens secures order for 400 MW offshore wind farm in Denmark

Erlangen, Germany, June 22, 2010 – Siemens Energy has secured an order from DONG Energy to supply 111 wind turbines for an offshore wind power plant.

The 400 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.

When fully operational, the Anholt Offshore Wind Farm project will provide renewable energy for about 400,000 households. This equals about 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 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 will 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.

Siemens has been the leading provider of offshore wind turbines with more than 50 percent of the world’s offshore installations. More than 150 of the company’s 3.6 MW wind turbine units have been installed in offshore projects across Europe so far and an additional 1,100 units are sold.
