Energy giant E.ON has sucessfully installed its first 80 turbines in the North Sea off the coast of Germany.

The Amrumbank West offshore project installed the turbines 35 kilometres to the north of the island of Helgoland.

With a total capacity of 288MW the wind farm can supply electricity to as many as 300,000 households, the company said.

The turbines are being prepared for operation and will soon feed electricity into grid, said Project Manager Dominik Schwegmann.
