Renewable energy: Wind farms back on the rise
VEM generators for the largest offshore wind farm complex in Germany

One of the largest offshore wind farms in the world is currently being installed around 40 kilometres off the coast of the German North Sea island Juist. In this connection, the Dresden VEM location has received a manufacturing order for five wind turbine generators with a nominal output of 6.16 MW each for the first project stage. The farm will initially comprise 54 turbines, with a total output capacity of approx. 330 MW.

Together with the further expansion stages Nordsee 2 (48 turbines) and Nordsee 3 (60 turbines), it will eventually boast an installed capacity of around 1,000 MW. The 162 wind turbines are to be spread over an area of almost 100 square kilometres.
