All 31 monopile foundation turbines are installed at our offshorewind farm Deutsche Bucht. MHI Vestas has installed the 31st turbine at Northland Power’s 269 MW Deutsche Bucht Offshore Wind Farm, as the final two turbines of a pilot project are scheduled for installation at the site later this year. The remaining 2 turbines will be erected on Mono Bucket foundations.

Deutsche Bucht, MHI Vestas’ second offshore wind project in the German North Sea, is already delivering power, with the first turbines producing energy from July 2019. Once finished, the combined 33 V164-8.4 MW turbines will produce enough wind energy to power 328,000 German homes. “We’re proud to have reached this milestone at Deutsche Bucht,” said Flemming Ougaard, MHI Vestas Chief Operations Officer. “The timely installation of these turbines is a testament to the installation team, our partners, and the collective expertise within this industry.” The 31 turbines were installed on monopile foundations at a water depth of approximately 40 metres.
