First wind farm with REpower 6M turbines fully erected
In January, the nacelles of the three 6Ms were shipped from the REpower plant in Bremerhaven to Dagebüll in Schleswig-Holstein and transported to the construction site from there. The rotor blades, each one 61.5 metres in length, were transported as a wide load directly from Denmark. The hub height of a 6M in the Westre civic wind farm comes to 100 metres: a crane with a boom height of 132 metres assisted in erecting the turbines.
Matthias Schubert, CTO of REpower, is delighted with the premiere. "By now, the REpower team has gained experience in the installation of 17 turbines of the type REpower 5M; the 6M technology is based on the successful 5M construction series. However, this was still our first time erecting a wind farm that consists fully of turbines each with a six megawatt output and for this I congratulate the entire project team. This achievement means we have once again taken one huge step forward in the field of offshore wind energy," he points out.
Also, the framework agreement between REpower Systems AG and the RWE subsidiary Innogy, signed in February, includes the delivery of up to 250 turbines of the type REpower 5M or 6M for the "Innogy Nordsee 1" offshore wind farm.
Over 200 limited partners from the districts of Westre, Ellhöft and the Danish Lydersholm are participating in the Vindtved GmbH & Co. KG civic wind farm.
