Siemens Power Generation has signed a contract with Danish energy company Dong Energy A/S for the supply of 91 wind turbines to extend the existing Horns Rev offshore wind farm in the North Sea off the Danish coast. With a total capacity of more than 200 MW, Siemens says this is the largest order it has received for offshore wind turbines.

Installation of the wind turbines for the Horns Rev II project is expected to begin in early 2009, with start-up slated for the end of 2009. The 91 SWT-2.3-93 type wind turbines, with a capacity of 2.3 MW each, will be installed offshore at water depths of nine to 17 meters. The contract between Dong Energy and Siemens covers delivery and installation of the turbines, as well as a service and maintenance agreement.

"This order is also an important signal to the international market with regard to the expansion of Danish wind power capacity - both when it comes to positioning Denmark in the rapidly growing offshore wind power market, and particularly for the global efforts to reduce CO2 emissions," says Andreas Nauen, head of Siemens' wind power division.
