Following the 497MW order for the EnBW Hohe See offshore wind power-plant, EnBW has also awarded Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy with the installation of the neighboring 112MW-project EnBW Albatros.
The scope of supply includes 16 direct-drive SWT-7.0-154 wind turbines on monopile foundations and the grid connection via a Siemens Offshore Transformer Module (OTM). Siemens Gamesa will install both wind power plants in parallel. Installation will start in spring 2018. The projects are located 90 kilometers north of Borkum Island in the German North Sea with water depths of up to 40 meters. The combination of both projects offers synergies to EnBW in respect to planning, construction, and during operation. After commissioning in 2019, Siemens Gamesa will initially provide service and maintenance for the turbines over a period of five years. EnBW Albatros is the first German offshore wind power plant that Siemens will supply as a full-scope project.
