The installation of the first two 6 MW wind turbines in the offshore wind power plant Gunfleet Sands III with the specially designed installation vessel SEA INSTALLER marks an important milestone for Siemens. The company has played a pioneering role in the challenging area of offshore installation of wind turbines. Its purpose in these endeavors is to further reduce the costs of wind energy and thereby let wind power compete with traditional energy sources. Apart from innovations such as the new gearless 6 MW wind turbine, another important factor is the systematic industrialization of offshore logistics.
