Dong to build first German offshore farm

Denmark-based energy group Dong Energy is to build the offshore wind farm Borkum Riffgrund 1 in the German part of the North Sea.

The construction will represent a total investment of approximately €1.25 billion. Construction work is expected to start in 2013 with first power production in 2014.

The wind farm will be situated in the North Sea, approximately 55km off the north-west coast of Germany

Borkum Riffgrund 1 will consist of up to 89 3.6 MW turbines from Siemens Wind Power with a total capacity of 320 MW.

The company, which is getting ready for its first offshore wind farm in Germany, will receive a fixed price per kWh of electricity produced until approximately 13 years of operation.

Siemens will be responsible for supply, installation, and commissioning of the wind turbines over an area of 36 square kilometres and at water depths of as much as 29 metres. Each turbine has a capacity of 3.6 MW and a rotor diameter of 120 meters. In addition, Siemens signed a five-year service, maintenance, and warranty agreement for the units with an extension option.

Dong Energy currently has approximately 700 MW of offshore wind power in production and approximately 1GW under construction in the UK and Denmark.
