DONG Energy And Siemens Construct $1.2 Billion Wind Farm

Dong Energy, in a partnership with Siemens, plans for the construction of an offshore windfarm based 32 km off the British east coast.

91 6MW wind turbines will be supplied by Siemens. Installation is scheduled to begin in 2017 and is expected to be complete in 2018, where it will provide enough energy to power 400,000 homes.

In a separate announcement, Dong Energy is also working with Siemens to supply another project, the Hornsea Project One, another wind farm off the UK coast. Should the project proceed, it will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world with 171 of Siemens 7MW turbines. The project’s investment may be as high as $6.36 billion, predicted by the Bloomburg New Energy Finance analyst Tom Harris, but final investment decisions on the facility will take place in the second half of the next year.
