Siemens Gamesa - 1,386 MW to Ørsted at the world’s largest offshore wind farm, UK - 02.2018

SIEMENS Gamesa Renewable Energy, Hamburg / Ørsted, Hamburg: SGRE has been awarded exclusivity by Danish energy group Ørsted for the supply and service of wind turbines for the Hornsea Project Two offshore wind project, being developed in British waters, where it will install its SG 8.0-167 DD turbines with total capacity of 1,386 MW. This offshore wind farm, which will be the world's biggest offshore wind farm when operational in 2022, is also the largest offshore project in Siemens Gamesa's history, the biggest to date being Hornsea One (1,218 MW), similarly developed by Ørsted. "We are very pleased that Ørsted has placed its trust in Siemens Gamesa once again. Hornsea Project Two will be a benchmark in Europe, not only on account of its size but also its technology. Siemens Gamesa will install the newest model from its offshore platform at this facility. The SG 8.0-167 boosts annual output by 20% and offers higher returns," underscored Andreas Nauen, Offshore CEO at SGRE.

A single 8-MW turbine is capable of generating enough electricity for around 8,000 European households so that the power generated by this complex will cover the annual power consumption needs of around 1.3 million homes. The new SG 8.0-167 DD is equipped with a rotor 167 metres in diameter. The blades, 81.5 metres long, deliver an 18% wider swept area and 20% more annual output than its predecessor, the SWT-7.0-154. It features the technology proven in the direct drive platform combined with a larger-scale rotor in order to offer customers higher returns while minimising the associated costs and risks.
Hornsea Project Two will be built 89 kilometres from the Yorkshire coast. Hornsea Project Two will be operated from our new operations and maintenance hub in Grimsby, where construction is underway. Duncan Clark, Programme Director for Hornsea Project Two.
