Vattenfall and Siemens Gamesa have agreed to extend the scope of supply for offshore wind project Hollandse Kust Zuid in the Netherlands from zone three and four to zone one and two.

As the two companies announced, the new high-performance Siemens Gamesa 11 MW wind turbines will be used there for the first time. According to current planning, the entire Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm zone will be equipped with a total of 140 units of the upgraded version of SG DD-193 offshore wind turbines. This capacity expansion can be achieved under certain site conditions and means that fewer turbines are required to generate the same amount of electricity. Thus installation costs, operating and maintenance costs and accordingly the price for offshore wind will be reduced. In addition, the environmental impact of the construction and operation of the wind farm is significantly reduced.

"Our robust cooperation with Vattenfall becomes even more powerful with this conditional order. The newest version of our largest offshore Direct Drive machine is now setting the benchmark for turbines in subsidy-free offshore wind power projects. We’re thankful for the trust Vattenfall has placed in us to deliver the high levels of safety, reliability, and performance which they value so highly. Delivering clean energy for generations to come at a low Levelized Cost of Energy is a joint target which we’re committed to achieving together”, says Andreas Nauen, CEO of the Siemens Gamesa Offshore Business Unit.

“By deploying one of the largest and most efficient turbines ever for the first subsidy-free offshore wind farm to date, Vattenfall is underlining its position as a leader in the offshore wind industry. It’s a major step for Vattenfall in realising its mission to enable fossil free living within one generation. Using their newest turbine variant, highlights our strong and long-standing partnership with Siemens Gamesa. This milestone follows an intensive, open tendering process which resulted in a choice for Siemens Gamesa after they entered the most competitive bid”, says Gunnar Groebler, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Area Wind at Vattenfall.
