Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

With this decision, #dongenergy will reach 6.7GW of installed offshore wind capacity, exceeding the 2020 target of 6.5GW installed capacity.

Borkum Riffgrund 2 will have a total export capacity of 450MW, and will feature the largest wind turbines in German waters: 56 units of MHI Vestas’ 8MW wind turbines with rotor spans of 164 meters. The offshore wind farm will supply CO2-free power corresponding to the annual electricity consumption of approximately 460,000 German households.

A major investor in the renewable #energy infrastructure

Samuel Leupold, Executive Vice President and Head of Wind Power in #dongenergy, says:

“Offshore wind is a significant contribution to the German #energy transition, and Borkum Riffgrund 2 confirms DONG Energy’s position as one of the major investors in the renewable #energy infrastructure in

Germany. The 8MW turbine takes offshore wind efficiency a further step forward, and the size of the Borkum Riffgrund 2 project is yet another indication of market maturity. We’ll continue our relentless efforts to drive down the cost of electricity from offshore wind.”

Green power to power to 1.4 million German households.

Trine Borum Bojsen, Country Manager of #dongenergy Wind Power Germany, says:

“With Borkum Riffgrund 2, we’ll start the construction of our fourth offshore wind farm in Germany. After completion of Borkum Riffgrund 2, #dongenergy will have installed approximately 1.35GW of offshore wind in German waters and supply power to 1.4 million households.”
