The wind turbines will be produced in Bremerhaven, Germany. From there, the components can be transported directly to their destination on the high seas.
With a capacity of 332 MW, the Gode Wind I wind farm will provide power to at least 324,000 households, according to REpower.
"Both REpower and PNE WIND have since built up extensive experience in the offshore sector," explains Thorsten Fastenau, vice president of offshore at PNE WIND AG. "This is why Gode Wind I is developed to an extent that allowed us to submit the documents for the necessary consent for mains connection to grid operator TenneT following the speedy conclusion of the contract – because, in addition to the supply contract agreements regarding the transformer station, the foundations and the wind farm's internal cabling are already complete."
The wind turbines are set to be installed and commissioned in 2015.
