Turbine manufacturer Senvion reports that the oft-delayed 295 MW Nordsee Ost wind farm is nearing its way to commercial operation. The turbine maker says the first batch of 48 6.2M126 turbines was installed in waters located 35 km north of Heligoland, Germany, at the end of June.

Senvion began building the wind farm between 2011 and 2013 with the first offshore wind turbines expected to go live in 2012. However, grid connection delays pushed back the project schedule.

When completed in spring 2015, Senvion notes, the Nordsee Ost will be one of the largest commercial wind power projects off the German coast.
