DONG Energy says its Gode Wind 2 offshore wind farm, located in the German North Sea, has started producing power and feeding into Germany’s grid.
With 42 wind turbines and a capacity of 252 MW, Gode Wind 2 will produce enough power to supply approximately 260,000 German households yearly, says DONG Energy, which holds a 50% share in the project. The remaining 50% is owned by a consortium of four Danish pension funds: PKA, Industriens Pension, Lærernes Pension and Lægernes Pensionskasse.
Construction of the project started in April 2015. Together, Gode Wind 1 and Gode Wind 2 have a total capacity of 582 MW.
