RWE has signed a Preferred Supplier Agreement with Siemens Gamesa. 72 units of Siemens Gamesa’s SG 14-236 DD offshore wind turbines are planned to be installed at RWE’s 1,000MW Thor project. In addition, a service contract for the wind turbines is included.
All deliveries are subject to RWE’s final investment decision. RWE will build the Thor wind power plant in the Danish North Sea, approximately 22 kilometers from Thorsminde on the west coast of Jutland. Installation of the turbines at sea is expected to begin in 2026. The installation works are planned to be carried out from the Port of Esbjerg, Denmark. Once fully operational, which is planned to be no later than the end of 2027, RWE’s Thor offshore wind power plant would be capable of producing enough green electricity to supply the equivalent of more than one million Danish households.
