The final turbine for the Nordsee One offshore wind farm has been installed and commercial operations are set to commence by the end of this year.
Tim Kittelhake, managing director and COO of Nordsee One, said in an announcement at the end of last week that turbine installation had been completed within seven months. The site is located in the North Sea, around 40 kilometers to the north of the island of Juist.
The scale of the project is significant, with the turbines measuring approximately 150 meters from sea level to blade tip.
According to Nordsee One its 54 turbines will generate, on average, 1.2 billion kilowatt hours per year and supply the equivalent of around 400,000 average homes with green electricity. This will help to save more than one million tons of CO2 when compared with a “conventional” coal fired plant.
