On 5 June, the last of a total of 72 turbines was installed at Kriegers Flak, which will be Denmark's largest offshore wind farm. Next steps will be to finalise testing and certification of the farm, with inauguration planned for the autumn.
Despite the logistical challenges that the Covid pandemic has brought, the schedule for the construction of Vattenfall's Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm has been kept. The 72 WTGs in the array are now all installed 15-40 km off the east coast of Denmark. The first turbine was installed in February this year, and, since then installation of the remaining Siemens Gamesa offshore wind turbines, has continued smoothly. The turbines are each 188 m in height, with a foundation weighing up to 800 tonnes.
When the farm is operating at its full capacity, it will generate 604 MW, and will be Denmark's largest offshore wind farm to date. It will increase Danish wind production by approximately 16 %.
During the installation phase the turbines were pre-assembled and shipped out of the Port of Roenne on the Baltic Sea island of Bornholm. It will be serviced out of Vattenfall’s new service facility at the Port of Klintholm approximately 100 km south of the Danish capital Copenhagen.
