The Rodsand II project has begun operations in the Baltic Sea off the coast of Denmark. Siemens erected the 90 wind turbines, each with 2.3 MW capacity and a rotor diameter of 93 meters, six weeks ahead of schedule, according to the company.
Siemens received the order for the construction of Rodsand II from Germany-based utility E.ON in 2008. The project is located to the south of the island of Lolland in the Baltic Sea, and its installed capacity is 207 MW. Rodsand I is located 3 km to the west and consists of 72 turbines of 2.3 MW each.
E.ON and Siemens are now partnering on the construction of the London Array project off the coast of Great Britain. In the first stage, Siemens will supply 175 wind turbines of 3.6 MW each to the London Array owners' consortium, which includes E.ON, DONG Energy and Masdar Power.
