Wind turbine OEM Senvion says the contract for the Trianel Windpark Borkum II has been concluded and is now effective. The notice to proceed was confirmed at the end of April with Trianel Windkraftwerk Borkum II GmbH & Co KG (TWB II).
The conditional contract for the turbine delivery and service for the Trianel Windpark Borkum II (TWBII) offshore project was signed in September 2016. With the contract completion achieved, the project can now enter the next phase of development.
The TWBII offshore wind farm will consist of 32 Senvion 6.2M152 turbines with a power upgrade and will be installed in a water depth of 25 to 35 meters. The wind farm will produce around 800 million kilowatt-hours of electricity every year. The wind farm is planned to be installed 45 km north of the island Borkum in the German North Sea.
It will be located close to the Alpha Ventus wind farm, which started operations in 2009 and is equipped with six 5M 126 Senvion offshore turbines. The installation of the turbine components is planned for spring 2019.
