Siemens Energy has been awarded a contract to deliver 80 wind turbines of the SWT-3.6-120 type for the DanTysk offshore wind power plant located in the North Sea. The customer is the DanTysk Offshore Wind GmbH in which Vattenfall Europe and the Stadtwerke München have a 51- and 49-per cent stake respectively.

Vattenfall will built and operate the wind power plant. Installation of the turbines is scheduled to begin in 2012. Once the wind power plant is commissioned in the winter of 2013-2014, DanTysk will use its total capacity of 288MW to supply up to 500,000 German households with clean electricity. The DanTysk wind power plant will be constructed about 70 km west of the island of Sylt, near the maritime boundary with Denmark. For the DanTysk project, Siemens is responsible for the installation and commissioning of the 80 wind turbines over a surface area of 70 square kilometers and in depths up to 30 meters. In addition, Siemens signed a service, maintenance, and warranty agreement for the units.
