The final turbine has been installed at Vattenfall's Horns Rev 3 offshore windfarm in Denmark.
The MHI Vestas Offshore Wind V164-8.3 MW turbines were installed by A2Sea and Fred Olsen Windcarrier.
MHI Vestas chief operations officer Flemming Ougaard said, “As a company based in Denmark and with a strong industrial footprint here, we’re extremely proud to have installed the V164-8.3 MW turbine in Danish waters at Horns Rev 3. The successful installation of all 49 turbines is a testament to our focus on safety and the strong relationships we have with our construction partners.”
First power was produced by what will be Denmark’s largest offshore windfarm in late December.
When Horns Rev 3 is in full operation later in first half of 2019, its 49 turbines will increase annual Danish electricity generation from wind energy by about 12%. The 8.3-MW turbines are being supplied by MHI Vestas and shipped from Esbjerg.
With a capacity of 406 MW and an expected annual output of 1,700 GWh, Horns Rev 3 will provide the annual electricity consumption of approximately 425,000 Danish households.
Horns Rev 3 is in the North Sea 25-40 km off the Danish west coast.
