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 252MW grid connection for Gode Wind II according to the Kraftwerksanschlussregister (dated 28-Feb-13). The BSH has approved plans to increase the maximum size turbine. The maximum turbine capacity and size is 8MW, 168m hub height and 116m rotor diameter (September 2013), although it is still expected that Siemens 6MW turbines will be used.

In an Amendement Notice, published by the BSH, it is known that Gode Wind II has now became Gode Wind 02 and Gode 04, both consisting of 42 turbines.

Further to this, DONG has announced their intention to build Gode Wind 02 wind farm consisting of 42 Siemens SWT-6.0-154 turbines.
