Siemens will supply 80 of its SWT-3.6-120 offshore wind turbines for Amrumbank West GmbH, a subsidiary of E.ON AG.
“With contracts signed for around 440 offshore wind turbines with a total installed capacity of approximately 1600 MW, Siemens is the clear number one in offshore wind energy utilisation in Germany” says Felix Ferlemann, CEO of Siemens Energy’s Wind Power Division.
“Our offshore technology will play a substantial role in building up a clean electricity supply in Germany.”
The Amrumbank West offshore wind park site is around 35 km north of the island of Helgoland and 37 km west of the island of Amrum.
Siemens will deliver, install, and commission the wind turbines, and handle maintenance for an initial period of five years. Helgoland will serve as the service base, and the offshore wind turbines will be installed over an area of 32 km2 at a water depth of around 25 meters.
