Region Exclusive Economic Zone 1 (DolWin) (BSH Cluster 3 in Draft Network Plan) correct
Comments All agreements to use Vestas or Repower turbines no longer stand after DONG acquired the project. Turbines went out to tender for all three phases and it was decided that Siemens' 6MW model will be used. DONG have contracted 154 6MW turbines with Siemens for the four phases of Gode Wind.

Before the release of the Offshore-Netzentwicklungsplan (O-NEP) draft, TenneT had agreed a 332MW grid connection for Gode Wind I according to the Kraftwerksanschlussregister (dated 28-Feb-13).

The BSH has approved plans to reduce the number of turbines but increase the turbine capacity. The number of turbines is now at 55 and the maximum turbine capacity and size is 8MW, 168m hub height and 116m rotor diameter (September 2013 - although it is anticipated that Siemens SWT-6.0-154 6MW turbines will be selected after a framework agreement between DONG and Siemens took place in April 2013).

Further to this, DONG has announced their intention to build Gode Wind 01 wind farm consisting of 55 Siemens SWT-6.0-154 turbines.
