Friday, April 12, 2013

DONG Energy & Siemens AG sign up to supply and service a total of 154 offshore wind turbines (OWT) of 6 megawatt each.

The agreements give DONG Energy the option to install the turbines on its Gode Wind projects in Germany from 2015. Utilisation of the potential supplies and services under the agreements is subject to official approvals for the specific projects and DONG Energy making a positive investment decision for the projects.

Following the acquisition of the ownership interest in the Gode Wind projects in August 2012, DONG Energy invited tenderers for the supply of offshore turbines in accordance with EC tender rules. The agreements signed with Siemens AG are a result of the tender procedure.

The agreements concern Siemens’ 6 megawatt offshore wind turbine based on gearless direct drive technology and with a 154-metre rotor.

”With these agreements we are stepping up our commitment to the German offshore wind market. We are already building our first wind farm in Germany and maturing a number of other projects, including the Gode Wind projects on which we plan to use the supplies under these agreements,” said Samuel Leupold, Executive Vice President in DONG Energy Wind Power and continued, “By 2020 we want to have installed 6,500 megawatt of offshore wind power compared to the 1,700 megawatt we have already built. The agreements with Siemens AG are an important step towards meeting that target. I am therefore pleased we have completed the tender and concluded agreements for the turbines.”
