The last of the 72 Siemens Gamesa SG 8.0-167 DD wind turbines at Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm has been installed. When complete, it will be Denmark's largest offshore wind farm.

According to project developers Vattenfall, despite the logistical challenges that the Covid pandemic has brought the schedule for the construction of Vattenfall's
Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm has been kept. On 27 January, Jan De Nul, Siemens Gamesa and Vattenfall successfully installed the first turbine was and, since then, installation of the remaining Siemens Gamesa offshore wind turbines, has continued according to schedule. Work is underway to finalise testing and certification of the project ahead of its inauguration after summer.

During the installation phase the turbines have been preassembled and shipped out of the Port of Roenne situated on the Baltic Sea island of Bornholm. The array will be serviced out of Vattenfall’s new service facility at the Port of Klintholm approximately 100 kilometres south of the Danish capital Copenhagen.


"We are pleased to see that the installation of the turbines has been successfully completed. Despite Covid, we have been able to deliver according to plan – actually a little ahead of schedule – which shows that our general strategy to prepare for the unforeseen has proved to be robust. We are very satisfied with the cooperation with our partners and proud of the contribution that the farm will make to enabling a fossil-free future," said Catrin Jung, Head of Offshore Wind in Vattenfall. 
  
“It’s extremely rewarding that we – in the middle of these challenging Covid times - have safely installed all 72 wind turbines ahead of schedule. The close collaboration between Siemens Gamesa employees, Vattenfall, and the Port of Roenne has been outstanding. We look forward to continuing the great joint efforts on the Danish Kriegers Flak project with all,” said Marc Becker, CEO of Offshore at Siemens Gamesa. 
  
Vattenfall secured rights to the 604.8 MW
Kriegers Flak project in November 2016, with a winning bid of EUR 49.9 per MWh. Kriegers Flak is expected to provide enough power to cover the annual electricity consumption of approximately 600,000 Danish households.
