Siemens is to supply, install and commission 56 wind turbines for the 336MW Galloper Wind Farm Ltd. (GWFL) off the south-east coast of England. The owners of the offshore wind power plant are RWE, UK Green Investment Bank, Macquarie Capital and Siemens Financial Services (SFS), each with a 25 per cent stake.

Siemens will also be responsible for servicing the wind turbines for a 15-year period. The total investment costs of the Galloper project are GBP 1.5 billion. Siemens is due to start installing the 56 SWT-6.0-154 wind turbines for the Galloper project in May 2017. The wind power plant is scheduled to be fully operational by March 2018. Siemens Financial Services contributed to securing the Siemens bid by providing 25 per cent of the total project equity, as well as supporting RWE with development funding in the period up to financial close. The Galloper offshore wind power plant is to be erected around 27 kilometers off the coast of Suffolk. The wind turbines will be constructed on monopiles in water between 27 and 36 meters deep. The Galloper project is an extension of the already on-line Greater Gabbard offshore wind farm, which has a capacity of 504MW.
