Siemens to erect 160 wind turbines in a single off-shore park

Siemens reported the other day that they will supply and erect 160 wind turbines each with a capacity of 3.6 megawatts for the Gwynt y Môr project (North Wales coast). Siemens will also provide the connection of the wind turbines to the power grid including substations (offshore transformer platforms).

The first German off-shore park (Alpha-Ventus) is in operation since Spring 2010. This is just the first step - huge projects are planned. More to come.
