Siemens Gamesa has signed an order with Eurowind Energy for Thorup-Sletten, the largest onshore wind farm in Denmark to date. The 18 onshore turbines will have a total capacity of 77 MW and an electricity production equivalent to the average annual consumption of approximately 65,000 households. The company is constantly working to offer innovation, technology, and solutions tailored to the needs of their customers.
Eurowind Energy states that it is proud of being the developer behind the largest onshore project in Denmark. This is yet another proof that onshore wind should continue to be an important part of the energy mix to keep Denmark at the forefront when it comes to wind energy. The company has chosen Siemens Gamesa after carefully scouting the market to find a turbine that is both a great match for very windy conditions and can deliver high product quality at a highly competitive price. The upgrade of the turbine from 3.6 to 4.3 MW together with the 130 meters rotor was important to get the lowest cost per KWh produced.
The installation of the Thorup-Sletten wind farm, west of the Aggersund bridge in northwestern Jutland, will start in October of this year. Siemens Gamesa will also be responsible for service and maintenance of the wind farm for 20 years through a long-term service program tailored for Eurowind.
