Siemens Awarded Major Order for Two Wind Power Plants in the German North Sea
Siemens received an order for two German offshore wind power plants to supply 97 wind turbines, each with a rating of six MW and a rotor diameter of 154 meters, to the Danish energy provider DONG Energy. The Gode Wind 1 (252 MW) and Gode Wind 2 (330 MW) wind power plants will be erected off the North Sea island of Juist. This will mark the first time that Siemens will be supplying its new six-MW wind turbines for offshore in Germany. Siemens will also service the wind turbines for a period of five years. Construction is planned to begin in the first half of 2015, with commissioning scheduled for the second half of 2016.
