SG 8.0-167 DD wind turbines are in place to power at Vattenfall's newest and to date largest offshore wind farm, Kriegers Flak. 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.

During the installation phase, the turbines were 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.
