Largest offshore wind turbine deal signed

Largest offshore wind turbine deal signed
The largest deal for the supply of offshore wind turbines has been signed by London Array partner DONG Energy.

Up to 500 wind turbines will be supplied to the Danish firm by Siemens, which the provider claims takes the two companies closer to 'industrialising' the offshore wind business.

In total, the wind turbines that Siemens will provide will have a capacity of 1.8 gigawatts and will be placed dependent on country's procedures and the economic conditions for renewable energy.

Anders Eldrup, DONG Energy chief executive officer said: "With this agreement the parties are jointly taking a quantum leap towards further streamlining the construction of projects of this kind."

Siemens renewable energy division chief executive Rene Umlauft added: "Together we have taken a big step towards 'industrialization' of the offshore wind business which is one of the fastest growing renewable energy technologies."

The London Array, which is being developed by E.On, DONG and Masdar, will have the capacity to generate 1GW from up to 271 wind turbines.
