Siemens Gamesa has announced it has signed an agreement with DONG Energy to supply 94 wind turbines – amounting to 752 megawatts – for the Borssele 1 and 2 offshore wind power plant.

The facility, being developed in Dutch waters, is set to be commissioned in 2020 and will provide enough power to meet the yearly energy needs of one million homes, Siemens Gamesa said.

“The advanced model of our proven direct drive offshore wind turbine platform and our advanced services will leverage the energy output of this lighthouse project and help to move offshore wind into the energy mainstream in Europe,” Michael Hannibal, CEO Offshore at Siemens Gamesa, said in a statement on Thursday.
