    #$%$, Siemens strike 924MW deal for Gode Wind farms

    11 Apr 2013

    #$%$ and Siemens have entered into an agreement for the supply of 154 offshore wind turbines of 6MW each – equivalent to an energy generating capacity of 924MW – for the Gode Wind projects in Germany

    Gode Wind was acquired by #$%$ in August 2012 at which point the company invited tenderers to bid for the supply of offshore turbines. Siemens won the bidding with its 6MW offshore wind turbine with a 154-metre rotor.

    Samuel Leupold, executive vice president at #$%$ Energy Wind Power, said, ‘With these agreements we are stepping up our commitment to the German offshore wind market.We are already building our first wind farm in Germany and maturing a number of other projects, including the Gode Wind projects on which we plan to use the supplies under these agreements.

    ‘By 2020 we want to have installed 6,500MW of offshore wind power compared to the 1,700MW we have already built. The agreements with Siemens are an important step towards meeting that target. I am therefore pleased we have completed the tender and concluded agreements for the turbines.’
