Siemens to supply turbines for Danish wind plant

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.

When fully operational, the 400MW Anholt Offshore Wind Farm project will provide energy for approximately 400,000 households. This is said to equal approximately four per cent of Denmark’s total power consumption.

Siemens will supply 111 wind turbines with a capacity of 3.6MW and a rotor diameter of 120m.

Installed capacity at Anholt Offshore Wind Farm be almost twice that of Horns Rev 2, currently the world’s largest offshore wind farm

The wind turbines will be produced at Siemens plant in Brande, Denmark, and installed off the country’s east coast, 20km 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.
