Wednesday, 8 July, 2015 - 13:00

Siemens will supply 91 wind turbines for Race Bank offshore wind farm in Great Britain, each with a capacity of 6 MW. The order is part of the frame agreement with Dong Energy concluded in 2012.

Siemens is to supply, install and commission 91 of its 6 MW direct drive wind turbines enabling a capacity of up to 580 MW in total. The wind turbines with a rotor diameter of 154 m are slated for the Race Bank project of Dong Energy. Installation of the turbines is to commence during spring 2017. Service for the plant will be provided jointly by Siemens and Dong for a period of five years.

This order is part of the frame agreement concluded between Dong and Siemens in 2012.

Race Bank is part of the second round for public tenders in Great Britain. It will be built around 32 km off the British eastern coast and will cover an area of 62 km2. The wind turbines will be installed on monopile foundations in water depths between 6 and 26 m.
