DONG Energy to build Gode Wind 1 and 2 offshore wind farms in Germany

DONG Energy has decided to build the offshore wind farms Gode Wind 1 and 2 in the German part of the North Sea. The construction will represent a total investment of approximately EUR 2.2 billion [DKK 16.4 billion].

Gode Wind 1 (330 MW) and 2 (252 MW) will consist of 97 turbines from Siemens Wind Power, each of 6.0 MW/154m rotor, with a total capacity of 582 MW. The wind farms will be able to supply CO2-free power corresponding to the annual electricity consumption of approximately 600,000 German households. DONG Energy has already secured unconditional grid connection confirmation from the TSO, TenneT, for Gode Wind 1 and 2.
