Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has been awarded exclusivity by Ørsted for the supply and service of wind turbines for the Hornsea Project Two offshore wind farm, being developed in British waters, where it will install its SG 8.0-167 DD turbines with total capacity of 1,386MW.
Located 89 kilometres off the east coast of England, the wind farm will span 462 km2 and will be operational in 2022. The nacelles will be produced at the new factory in Cuxhaven, Germany, while the majority of blades will be made at the factory in Hull, UK, where the pre-assembly work will also be carried out. Towers are expected to be partly sourced from UK suppliers.
