REpower Systems SE, owned by Suzlon Group (NSE: SUZLON), has reached an arrangement with RWE Innogy (ETR: RWE) whereby it will deliver 54 offshore wind turbines for Germany’s Innogy Nordsee 1 farm. Each turbine is rated for 6.15 megawatts.

The total project, based in the German North Sea, is intended for a capacity of 332 megawatts. Once complete, it will be one of the world’s largest open-sea projects with multi-megawatt turbines.

From the Economic Times:

Speaking on the contract, Andreas Nauen, CEO, REpower systems SE, said: “This contract is an important signal for the German offshore wind industry. We are delighted that RWE Innogy, our customer for many years, has yet again selected REpower’s established technology for this important project.”

The wind turbine model in question happens to be the most powerful of its kind to be installed on open seas anywhere, worldwide. It is produced in Bremerhaven, and the components can be sent wherever required.

Back in 2009, three early models of the turbine were installed onshore at the Ellhoft wind project, while in the spring of 2012, the first offshore models were installed at the Belgian Thornton Bank project.

The Innogy Nordsee 1 wind project will generate enough power for roughly 324,000 households.
