Onshore Wind Farm to Feature World’s Best Selling Offshore Turbines
Norderhof wind farm in the town of Galmsbüll in the North Frisia region on the German North Sea coast will be extended with six additional wind turbines, Siemens announced.
Siemens’ wind turbines will be erected in late summer of 2014, and will raise the generating capacity of this onshore wind power plant to 37.7 megawatts (MW).
The interesting part of this project is that the wind farm operator has chosen Siemens’ SWT-3.6-120 turbine, world’s best-selling offshore wind turbine. The first series of the company’s 6 MW offshore wind turbine features the same proven B58 blade as is now used on the SWT-3.6-120.
Siemens will supply, install and service 80 of the SWT-3.6-120 wind turbine types for the Butendiek offshore wind power plant off Germany’s North Sea coast.
The coastal location and erection with a hub height of 89.5 meters will permit optimum energy yield.
