The 210MW offshore wind power plant Westermost Rough is officially inaugurated. Consisting of 35 Siemens wind turbines, each with a capacity of 6MW and a rotor diameter of 154 meters, this project is the first to use these turbines on a large scale in a commercial project.
Owner is a joint venture between DONG Energy (50%) and its partners Marubeni Corporation (25%) and the UK Green Investment Bank (25%). The Westermost Rough offshore wind power plant is situated 8 kilometers off the British east coast. The Siemens scope of supply for this project covered the delivery and the commissioning of the direct drive wind turbines. Siemens is responsible for all scheduled and unscheduled service and maintenance on the turbines at Westermost Rough for the first 5 years through a wind technician team comprised of 50% Siemens and 50% Dong Energy personnel. At Westermost Rough helicopters will be used to bring the service technicians to the wind turbines.
