REpower to deliver 54 turbines for German offshore wind project

REpower Systems will deliver 54 offshore turbines, each with 6,150kW of rated power, to PNE Wind for use in the Gode Wind I wind farm, which is based in the German North Sea.


The 6M wind turbines will be installed and commissioned at the site, located around 35km north of the East Frisian Islands and in waters of between 28 to 34 meters deep, in 2015.


Once installation is complete, the 332MW wind farm will be able to provide power to at least 324,000 households.


REpower Systems CEO Andreas Nauen said PNE is one of the first developers in Germany to switch to multi-megawatt turbines with an output in excess of 5MW.


"This is a real breakthrough, particularly for the numerous future projects in even deeper water," Nauen added.


REpower Offshore business unit head Frank Zimmermann said, "With Gode Wind I, we are taking the next step and assuming responsibility for other aspects including the entire port and ship operations during the construction phase for our turbines."


PNE Wind vice president offshore Thorsten Fastenau added, "Both REpower and PNE WIND have since built up extensive experience in the offshore sector. This is why Gode Wind I is developed to an extent that allowed us to submit the documents for the necessary consent for mains connection to grid operator TenneT following the speedy conclusion of the contract – because in addition to the supply contract agreements regarding the transformer station, the foundations and the wind farm's internal cabling are already complete."
