Siemens Gamesa has signed an order with Eurowind Energy for Thorup-Sletten, the largest onshore windfarm in Denmark to date. The 18 onshore turbines will have a total capacity of 77 MW.
“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,” said Jens Rasmussen, CEO for Eurowind Energy.
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.
“Of course it means a lot to us to win this bid from Eurowind and to be able to continue driving the transformation to renewables in Denmark. We are constantly working to offer innovation, technology and solutions tailored to the needs of the individual customer,” said Steven Pryor, Siemens Gamesa’s Onshore Business Unit CEO for North Europe and Middle East.
