NnG’s turbine components formed the backdrop for a historic moment at the recent North Sea Summit held in Esbjerg, Denmark.
One of the project’s nacelles featured in the background as leaders from the governments of Denmark, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands visited the Port of Esbjerg as part of the summit.
The leaders attended the summit to sign declarations that will quadruple the four countries’ total offshore wind capacity by 2030 and increase the total offshore wind capacity to at least 150 GW by 2050.
Pictured are German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, the Netherlands’ Prime Minister Mark Rutte, Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission.
NnG’s 54 wind turbines will each include one nacelle that contains all the components to control the turbine and convert the rotational movement to electricity via the main generator.
Over the coming months NnG’s turbine manufacturer Siemens Gamesa will deliver the nacelles and other turbine components to the Port of Dundee in Scotland where the turbines will be assembled before transported to, and installed, at the site of the offshore wind farm.
The first turbines will be operational in time for the wind farm to begin generating power in 2023, with completion scheduled for 2024.
