MHI Vestas Offshore Wind was confirmed as the preferred supplier for Borkum Riffgrund 2. Following negotiations with Dong Energy, the two companies have reached an agreement for the supply of V164-8.0 MW turbines to the project.

“We are pleased to have signed the contract with Dong Energy for the Borkum Riffgrund 2 project – which followed a competitive tender process where MHI Vestas was announced as preferred supplier,” said MHI Vestas’ CEO Jens Tommerup. “We are especially proud that Dong Energy have highlighted the fact that larger and more efficient turbines will support Dong Energy’s cost reduction targets and make offshore wind even more affordable,” he added.

Borkum Riffgrund 2 with an awarded grid capacity of 450 MW is located in the North Sea, approximately 57 km off the north-west coast of Germany. The contract is conditional upon the final investment decision from Dong Energy.
