DONG Energy and Siemens Wind Power have entered into an agreement under which Siemens will supply test turbines for research and development purposes to DONG Energy.  Siemens will supply two newly developed 6MW offshore wind turbines.

The new turbines are expected to be easier to maintain, as they are based on gearless, direct drive technology.The two 6MW turbines can be installed at DONG Energy's demonstration sites in the UK and Denmark. Furthermore, as part of the test programme, Siemens will supply an updated version of Siemens' 3.6MW turbine with a 120-metre rotor for use at DONG Energy's Avedøre Holme test site. As part of the demonstration programme, a number of tests will be carried out on the turbines with a view to observations and test results being used in the work connected with the development of DONG Energy's future offshore wind farms. The total investment for DONG Energy related to the construction of the three turbines is expected to amount to around DKK 450 million.
