Wind energy – Kriegers Flak
On 5 June, the last of a total of 72 turbines was installed at Kriegers Flak, which will be Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm.
Next steps will be to finalise testing and certification of the farm so that it can be inaugurated after summer.
The first turbine was installed in February 2021 and, since then, installation of the remaining Siemens Gamesa offshore wind turbines, has continued smoothly.
Despite the logistical challenges that the Covid pandemic has brought, the schedule for the construction of Vattenfall’s Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm has been kept.
“We are pleased to see that the installation of the turbines has been successfully completed. Despite Covid, we have been able to deliver according to plan – actually a little ahead of schedule – which shows that our general strategy to prepare for the unforeseen has proved to be robust. We are very satisfied with the cooperation with our partners and proud of the contribution that the farm will make to enabling a fossil-free future,” says Catrin Jung, Head of Offshore Wind in Vattenfall.
