Siemens has received an order for the turnkey delivery of the grid connection for the Dudgeon offshore wind farm.
The customers are the Norwegian utilities Statoil and Statkraft, which are jointly implementing the wind farm off the coast of the UK. Siemens will supply the entire power transmission system, including the two transformer substations, one onshore and one offshore, for the 402MW project. Siemens had previously received an order in August to deliver 67 wind turbines in the new 6MW class as well as to maintain the wind farm. The grid connection is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2016, and the installation of the wind turbines is expected to begin in early 2017.
