Siemens Gamesa to Supply 752 MW to Borssele 1 & 2
Siemens Gamesa and DONG Energy have signed an agreement for the supply of 94 8MW turbines (752MW) at the Dutch Borssele 1 and 2 offshore windfarm. The contract additionally includes maintenance of the turbines. The wind power plant will be located 22km from the coast of the Dutch province of Zeeland with a water depth of 14-38m and will cover an area of 128.3km2. The nacelles for this project will be assembled in Siemens Gamesa’s new factory in Cuxhaven, Germany and the blades will be produced in Hull, England. The power supplied of the 752-MW Borssele 1 and 2 projects will be sufficient to cover the annual electricity consumption of close to one million households. Siemens Gamesa and DONG Energy have collaborated on several offshore wind farms including London Array, West of Duddon Sands and Westermost Rough in the United Kingdom, the Anholt project in Denmark, as well as Borkum Riffgrund 1 and Gode Wind 1 and 2 in German waters.
