ABB won an order worth around $40 million from Energinet.dk, the Danish transmission system operator, to build an AC power cable system that will help integrate and transmit power from the 400 MW Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm. ABB´s project scope includes the technical design, engineering and production of the high-voltage cable system including accessories and installation. Energinet.dk is an independent public enterprise owned by the Danish state as represented by the Ministry of Climate, Energy and Building.
Alstom will supply 5 Haliade' 150-6 MW offshore wind turbines for Deepwater Wind's 30-MW Block Island Wind Farm located off the coast of Rhode Island. Alstom will manufacture the turbines and will provide 15 years of operation and maintenance support. The project is aligned with The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management's "Smart from the Start" offshore wind program, which aims to accelerate the development of clean, renewable offshore wind along the eastern seaboard of the U.S.
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.
