Offshore wind farms - from Siemens

Siemens Wind Farms

The picture shows the Middelgrunden offshore wind farm in Denmark.

Siemens Windpower built the world’s first offshore wind park – Vindegy Offshore – in Denmark in 1991. This was followed in 2000 by the Middelgrunden project in Denmark, the world’s largest offshore wind farm at the time.

One of the latest success stories is Nysted Offshore, which today counts as the world’s largest offshore wind park, with 72 windmills and a total capacity of 165.6 megawatts (MW).

Two new projects are currently being realized in Great Britain and Sweden. The 166-MW Lillgrund wind farm will see Sweden’s largest offshore installation. The BurboBanks Offshore in Great Britain will supply up to 75,000 households with electricity beginning fall 2007.
