The offshore wind farm in Anholt will have the capacity of 400 MW, almost double that of Horns Rev 2, currently the largest operating wind farm in the world with a capacity of 209 MW. At full operation, Anholt wind farm will supply nearly 400,000 households in green energy, or about 4% of the total electricity consumption in Denmark.
Siemens will provide 111 turbines to Anholt wind farm, each with a capacity of 3.6 MW with a rotor diameter of 120 meters. These turbines will be produced on the Siemens plant in Brande in Denmark, and installed off the coast of Denmark, 20 km north-east coast of the peninsula of Jutland.
The wind farm should be put into service in 2013.
Siemens will take over the manufacture, installation and commissioning of wind turbines. A contract of service and maintenance is also planned for the first five years, with the possibility to subscribe to the service center for five years.
The German energy group says to have delivered so far 150 units of its offshore wind turbines of 3.6 MW and says there are more than 1,000 additional units on order.
