Germany’s Baltic 1 offshore wind farm commissioned

By Renewable Energy Focus staff

The offshore wind farm was commissioned by EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg and consists of 21 Siemens 2.3 MW wind turbines.

René Umlauft, CEO of the Renewable Energy Division at Siemens, says: “When it comes to offshore wind farms, Siemens is clearly the world leader, with more than 20 years of project experience.”

6 MW wind turbine

Umlauft continues: “We’ll soon be introducing a new wind turbine with a capacity of 6 MW. This new machine is gearless and is ideally suited for offshore wind farms.”

EnBW Baltic 2

Siemens will also build the 288 MW EnBW Baltic 2 offshore wind farm (formerly known as Kriegers Flak), which will consist of 80 Siemens 3.6 MW wind turbines.

Baltic 2 is slated for connection to the grid in 2013.
