Siemens contracted by Germany's wpd group to supply & install 80 wind turbines for the Butendiek offshore wind power plant.

The agreement also covers a long-term maintenance contract for a period of ten years, the first of its kind for an offshore wind project. Siemens is to provide a new logistics concept that includes a service operation vessel specially developed for deployments to offshore wind facilities. The order volume including service is more than EUR 700-million.

When the Butendiek offshore wind power plant off Germany's North Sea coast comes online in 2015, the wind power plant's total generating capacity of 288 megawatts will be sufficient to supply some 370,000 households with ecofriendly electricity.

This project company is made up of five investors: Siemens Financial Services, Marguerite Fund, Industriens Pension, PKA A/S (each 22.5 percent) and wpd AG (10 percent).

Butendiek, to be erected about 32 kilometers west of the island of Sylt near the German-Danish border, is the second project-financed offshore wind power plant in Germany for which Siemens is supplying wind turbines and services. The wind turbines, each with a capacity of 3.6 megawatts and a rotor diameter of 120 meters, are to be erected across a surface area of 42 square kilometers in waters measuring about 20 meters deep.

Siemens is also bringing a comprehensive service package to the Butendiek offshore project, tailored to ensure maximum long-term exploitation of the wind farm's power potential. These efforts include remote monitoring and diagnostics solutions implemented in conjunction with state-of-the-art weather forecasting techniques which enable anticipatory, forward-looking service planning and enables maintenance work to be performed in bundled packages within suitable timeframes.

Siemens has also developed a new, customized logistics concept for Butendiek: Siemens' service technicians will live and work on board a specially designed ship, the Service Operation Vessel.
