WPD inaugurated its 288MW Butendiek offshore wind farm in the North sea yesterday in the NordseeCongressCentrum in Husum with around 300 guests.
Located 32 km west of Sylt, the 1.3 bn-euro project comprises 80 Siemens SWT 3.6-120 turbines capable of powering around 370,000 households with renewable energy.
With offshore work begining in March 2014 Butendiek was completed within the specified timeframe and cost budget.
Chairman of the Board at wpd AG, Dr. Gernot Blanke, said: “The Butendiek offshore wind farm was achieved in the record construction time of 15 months, which means it was on schedule – and also within budget. We are delighted by this success and we will contribute our experience to further projects.”
Investors in this project are Marguerite Fund, Siemens Financial Services, Industriens Pension (IP), Pensionskassernes Administration (PKA), CDC Infrastructure, ewz (Elektrizitätswerk der Stadt Zürich – Zurich Electricity Works) and wpd.
