All turbines have been installed at Ørsted's A/S (CPH:ORSTED) 573-MW Race Bank offshore wind farm in the UK, the Danish power company said today.
The wind park is made up of 91 Siemens 6-MW turbines, located off the North Norfolk coast in the North Sea. It is expected to be fully operational early next year.
Many of the turbines are equipped with the first blades to be made at Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy's SA (BME:GAM) blade factory in Hull.
Ørsted, previously Dong Energy, achieved first power generation at the wind park in May after the installation of the initial turbines.
The Danish company owns 50% in the project. The balance is held by Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund 5 with 25%, Macquarie Capital with 12.5% and Sumitomo Corp (TYO:8053) with 12.5%.
