Siemens supplies wind turbines

Dan Tysk Offshore Wind GmbH ordered 80 wind turbines from Siemens for the Dan Tysk wind farm. Off Germany’s North Sea coast, the farm will have a total capacity of 288MWs, and begin supplying clean electricity to 500,000 German households in 2014. The turbines used have a capacity of 3.6MW each, with a rotor diameter of 120m. The company will also provide maintenance services for the turbines. Grid operator TenneT has already placed an order with the company to provide services for the mainland connections of two North Sea wind farms, HelWin1 and BorWin2. Siemens will be responsible for maintaining the power lines and transmission systems linking HelWin1 northwest of Helgoland and BorWin2 near Borkum, to the mainland. The lines are between 85 and 125km long and capable of transporting wind generated power for two million German households.  Construction of the Dan Tysk farm will begin in 2013.
