The Danish Kriegers
farm project is located in the Baltic Sea, and will consist of two parts.
Kriegers Flak A, the west section, will have a total capacity of 200 MW.
The east section, Kriegers Flak B, will have a total capacity of 400 MW.
Vattenfall secured rights to the project in November 2016, with a winning
bid of EUR 49.9 per MWh. The wind farm is set to feature 72 Siemens Gamesa
turbines which have a rotor diameter of 167 metres and tip height of 188m.
The project also forms part of the Kriegers Flak Combined Grid Solution
for which a 170 kV High Voltage Alternating Current cable system connects
two offshore wind farms, Kriegers
The solution connects the national grids of Denmark and Germany
and is designed to facilitate the transmission of power between the
countries via the interconnection between the two wind farms.
