Siemens Energy has secured an order from DONG Energy to supply wind turbines for what will be Denmark's largest offshore wind power plant. The 400 MW Anholt Offshore Wind Farm will feature a capacity almost twice that of Horns Rev 2, a 209 MW project located off the Denmark coast. When fully operational, the Anholt Offshore Wind Farm will provide approximately 4% of Denmark's total power consumption.
Siemens will supply 111 wind turbines with a capacity of 3.6 MW and a rotor diameter of 120 meters, to the Anholt Offshore project. The wind turbines will be produced at Siemens' plant in Brande and installed off the east coast of Denmark. The wind farm is expected to be commissioned in 2013.
The scope of supply for Siemens includes the manufacturing, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines. Siemens will also provide a service and maintenance agreement for the first five years, with an option of selected services during the second five years.
