Vattenfall On Point with Danish Offshore Wind Projects (Expertise Hub VIDEO)


Vattenfall’s three Danish offshore wind projects are progressing on schedule following the order of wind turbines from Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, Gunnar Groebler, Senior Vice President Business Area Wind at Vattenfall, said.

As reported earlier, Vattenfall ordered 113 Siemens Gamesa 8MW turbines for the 605MW Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm in the Danish Baltic Sea, and the 350MW Vesterhav Nord and Syd nearshore wind farms in the Danish North Sea. The order was the biggest in the Swedish company’s history.

The turbines are expected to be in full operation in 2020 for the Vesterhav Syd and Nord farms, and in 2021 at Kriegers Flak.

‘’We are progressing with these projects on schedule and we will move into execution shortly,’’ Groebler said.

Commenting on the offshore wind projects currently under construction, Goebler said that over 50 percent of monopiles has been installed on the Horns Rev 3 wind farm off Denmark, with the installation of wind turbines scheduled to start in 2018, followed by the full commissioning of the 406MW wind farm in 2019.
