Siemens Gamesa has received a 913 MW firm order from customer Ørsted for the Borkum Riffgrund 3 offshore wind farm.
50 km off the coast of Lower Saxony in the German North Sea, three constituent areas within the overall development contribute to the 913 MW total installed capacity. In addition to the installation of the 83 offshore direct drive wind turbines, Siemens Gamesa has been awarded a multi-year contract to service the turbines. The installation of Borkum Riffgrund 3 is expected to begin 2024, with commissioning anticipated to be completed in 2025. The SG 11.0-200 DD machine which will be used features a capacity of 11MW with a 200-meter rotor. It utilises 97-meter-long Siemens Gamesa B97 blades, with a swept area of 31,400 m2.
