Siemens has won a contract to supply 97 wind turbines for DONG Energy’s offshore projects.
The Danish firm has confirmed plans to build the Gode Wind 1 and 2 offshore wind farms in the German part of the North Sea, costing around €2.2 billion (£1.8bn) in total – its bigger ever investment in power generation.
The projects will have a total capacity of 582MW – enough to generate electricity to power around 600,000 households.
Siemens will service all the turbines at the wind farms for five years. It has to date installed wind turbines for two offshore wind power plants in Germany, with six further projects on the order books, the company said.
Construction of the wind farms is due to begin in the first half of 2015, with commissioning scheduled for the second half of 2016.
