Senvion has installed the first offshore turbines for Nordsee Ost at the end of June.
The RWE offshore wind farm is located approximately 35 kilometres north of the island of Helgoland and is equipped with a total of 48 model 6.2M126 turbines. After the planned completion in spring 2015, the Nordsee Ost offshore wind farm will have an installed capacity of approximately 295 MW. Senvion is supplying all components for the wind turbines and the service platform cranes. At the moment, the hubs, rotor blades, nacelles, towers and other platform components are being preassembled as much as possible in the CT1 base harbour in Bremerhaven and loaded onto special ships to be transported to their destination. The installation of the turbines is to be completed this year; commissioning is scheduled from September.
