First 11MW Siemens Gamesa WTGs in German Waters to go to Gode Wind 3
Siemens Gamesa is to install the first of its SG 11.0-200 DD machines in German waters at Ørsted’s Gode Wind 3 following the confirmation of the order for the supply of the wind turbines.
The confirmation of this firm order comes at a time when the new German coalition government has considerably increased their targets for offshore wind energy production up to 2045. The original milestone of 20 GW installed by 2030 has been increased to 30 GW by 2030, and targets for 2035 and 2045 have been raised to 40 GW and 70 GW respectively.
The SG 11.0-200 DD offshore wind turbine provides a high degree of reliability in demanding offshore wind projects from its strong performance, swift time-to-market, and low risk. The machine features a 200-meter diameter rotor utilizing the 97-meter long Siemens Gamesa B97 IntegralBlades.
The transport and installation of the foundations will start in 2023 and will be the first assignment for Les Alizés, the next generation offshore installation vessel in the Jan De Nul Group.
Seaway 7 ASA have stated that the turbine installation will be the first work for their new jack-up installation vessel Seaway Ventus (previously known as VIND1) due to be delivered in Q2 2023
