The 102 Siemens direct-drive wind turbines of type SWT-7.0-154 will be installed on jacket foundations. The nacelles shall be manufactured in Cuxhaven, Germany. Siemens plans to produce the corresponding wind turbine blades for East Anglia ONE at its Hull facility. The port of Great Yarmouth will serve as pre-assembly harbor for the project.
