The Hornsea Project Two offshore wind farm, which is currently being planned, will be equipped with directly driven SG 8.0-167 DD offshore wind turbines. The site is located 89 kilometres off the British coast in the North Sea and covers an area of approx. 462 km². When completed in 2022, the wind farm will have a capacity of 1,386 megawatts and will be the world's largest offshore wind farm.

The contract ensures a high level of capacity utilization at Siemens Gamesa's plants in Cuxhaven and Hull, which were built in recent years. The nacelles are manufactured in the German city of Cuxhaven, where production started last year. The rotor blades are manufactured in British Hull. Pre-assembly and loading onto the construction vessels will also take place there.

"We are very pleased that Ørsted has placed its trust in Siemens Gamesa once again. Hornsea Project Two will be a benchmark in Europe, not only on account of its size but also its technology. Siemens Gamesa will install the newest model from its offshore platform at this facility. The SG 8.0-167 boosts annual output by 20% and offers higher returns,” underscored Andreas Nauen, Offshore CEO at SGRE.

Once completed, the wind farm will be able to cover the annual electricity consumption of almost 1.3 million households.
