Press Release
Monday, July 23, 2012

DONG Energy and Siemens Energy sign to supply & service 300 offshore wind turbines for installation offshore UK

The framework agreement is in regard to the 
supply and servicing of a total of 300 offshore wind turbines of 6 megawatt 
each, yielding  a total capacity of 1,800 megawatt. The turbines will be installed 
at selected DONG Energy offshore wind farms in the UK in the period 2014-2017. 



Under the framework agreement, Siemens Energy will design, manufacture, supply, 
install and service the 6 megawatt offshore wind turbines. Furthermore, the 
partners have agreed on product and performance warranties reflecting the size 
of the agreement. 

The agreement commits DONG Energy to pay a cancellation fee in the event of the 
cancellation of projects comprised by the agreement. 


The agreement concerns Siemens Energy’s newly developed 6 megawatt offshore 
wind turbine with a 154-metre rotor based on gearless direct drive technology. 
Siemens Energy’s new turbine belongs to the next generation of large offshore 
wind turbines of more than 5 megawatt and will give a significantly higher 
production per position. 


”The agreement will enable DONG Energy to install a significantly larger 
turbine from 2014 compared to the turbines, we know today. The agreement is a 
key element of DONG Energy’s strategy to significantly expand offshore wind and 
will strengthen our position as market leader in the offshore area,” says 
Carsten Krogsgaard Thomsen, Acting CEO of DONG Energy.
