Siemens to supply wind turbines for 320 MW German offshore wind farm

Siemens is to supply up to 89 wind turbines for Danish utility DONG Energy for a 320 MW offshore wind farm in Germany.
 
The Borkum Riffgrund 1 wind power plant will be located in the North Sea about 80 km northwest of Emden and 55 km off the German coast. Siemens will be responsible for supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines over an area of 36 square km and at water depths of as much as 29 metres.
 
Each turbine has a capacity of 3.6 MW and a rotor diameter of 120 metres. In addition, Siemens signed a five-year service, maintenance, and warranty agreement for the units with an extension option. Construction work is expected to start in 2013 with first power production in 2014.
