The wind farm comprises four Siemens Gamesa 7MW turbines installed nearshore on gravity jacket foundations and grid-connected using a new cable and turbine concept with a 66kV voltage.

The fourth wind turbine was installed at the site in the Bay of Thyborøn in January, and the wind farm produced its first electricity mid-February.

The demonstration site allows Siemens to test new technology and help reduce costs associated with offshore wind farms.

The wind farm will get support by receiving a guaranteed feed-in tariff of DKK 0.7/kWh (EUR 0.09/kWh) for the initial 10 years for the first 50,000 full load hours of operation.
