Siemens to supply wind turbines and grid connection for Beatrice offshore project

Wind power plant with total capacity of 588 megawatts Installation of the 7-MW turbines to begin in 2018 First project equipped with new offshore grid access solution Long-term service contract for 15 years

Siemens has received a further order for an offshore wind power plant from Scotland. The company is to supply, install and commission 84 wind turbines, each with a 154-meter rotor diameter designed to generate 7 megawatts (MW) of power, for the "Beatrice" project. Furthermore the scope of supply comprises the offshore grid connection to the mainland in consortium with Nexans who will supply the connecting export cables. Siemens will deliver the onshore and offshore substations consisting of two offshore transformer modules (OTM) which are smaller in weight and size and thus saving costs. The customer, Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd. (BOWL), is a partnership formed between SSE (40 percent), Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (35 percent) and SDIC Power (25 percent). The offshore wind power plant's capacity of 588 MW will be sufficient to supply more than 400,000 UK households with ecofriendly electricity. Siemens will additionally be responsible for servicing the wind farm over a period of 15 years.
