On 27 January, the tower, nacelle and blades were installed for the first turbine at the Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea. The installation follows the granting last week by the Danish Energy Agency of the license to produce electricity.
Despite the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the construction of Kriegers Flak is generally proceeding according to plan and scheduled to be fully operational by the end of 2021, at the latest. The individual parts of the turbines are assembled at Port of Roenne on the Danish island of Bornholm. Afterwards they are shipped in sets of four to the construction site at sea. The 72 turbines are produced by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and will be commissioned on an ongoing basis as they are installed. Kriegers Flak will have a production capacity of around 600 MW and is located in the Baltic Sea, 15-40 kilometres off the Danish coast.
