At 2 pm on Tuesday, August 16, Senvion installed the rotor star on the first of eighteen 6.2M126 turbines at the Nordergründe offshore wind farm. By Tuesday, the installation vessel MPI Enterprise was already on its way to the site of the second turbine, the erection of which will complete the initial phase of installations. The MPI Enterprise will then return to the CT1 base port (Eurogate container terminal) in Bremerhaven for the second phase and installation of the next two turbines. The project is being erected and managed by the wpd Group within the 12-nautical-mile zone approximately 40 kilometers northwest of Bremerhaven.
Each Senvion 6.2M126 turbine has a rated power of 6.15 megawatts, enabling it to supply around 4,000 households with energy. After the planned completion, the Nordergründe offshore wind farm will have an installed capacity of approximately 111 MW and be able to supply more than 70,000 households with power per year. To date, the Senvion 6.2M126 is the world’s most powerful mass-produced offshore wind turbine. Senvion got started in the multi-megawatt class back in 2004 and since then has achieved a great deal of success. No other manufacturer today has the experience that Senvion has, with more than 140 turbines from the 5 and 6 megawatt class installed on the high seas.
