The installation will be carried out on monopile foundations and the grid connection will be achieved through a Siemens offshore transformer module (OTM).

In February this year, Siemens won a contract to provide 71 offshore wind turbines for EnBW’s Hohe See offshore wind project, which is situated near to the Albatros project.

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy offshore's chief executive officer (CEO) Michael Hannibal said: “EnBW Albatros allows us to demonstrate our broad competence in offshore projects, ranging from project specific engineering services and the beneficial combination of power generation and transmission technology to service and maintenance concepts.

"We will turn the 112MW windpower plant into a highly profitable investment for our customer via cutting-edge technology and smart details."

“This project has a high relevance for us since we will turn the 112MW windpower plant into a highly profitable investment for our customer via cutting-edge technology and smart details.”

Siemens Gamesa will begin installation on both the plants next year. Following commission in 2019, Siemens Gamesa will also offer service and maintenanceservices over a period of five years.

Upon completion, EnBW Albatros will feature Siemens' compact OTM platform, which allows a reduction in weight and size of more than 30% compared to a traditional AC substations. It also reduces service and maintenance efforts.

In addition, Siemens is partnering with Belgian offshore construction specialist GeoSeafor installing the monopiles at EnBW Albatros.
