The construction of Amrumbank West offshore wind farm is completed. All 80 Siemens SWT-3.6–120 turbines are connected to the network. With its full installed capacity of 288MW now operational, Amrumbank West can produce enough climate-friendly power to meet the needs of 300,000 households.
Amrumbank West is in the German North Sea about 40 kilometers from Helgoland island, where the operations and maintenance center for the wind farm is located. E.ON invested € 1 billion in the project. Offshore construction began in January 2014, and the first turbine began generating electricity in May 2015. Amrumbank West is wholly owned by E.ON.
