AWEA WINDPOWER 2015
Siemens has the longest offshore track record, having established the world's first offshore wind power plant in 1991. As a result, our more than two decades of offshore experience is unmatched in the industry. More than 1,400 Siemens offshore wind turbines are currently installed and are recognized industry-wide for their continuous operation with excellent performance and reliability.
The D7 platform represents all the brainpower of the world’s most experienced offshore wind turbine manufacturer – and much more. In both the proven SWT-6.0-154 and its upgrade SWT-7.0-154, all the classic virtues of Siemens' turbines have been included – ample dimensioning of main components, redundant safety systems, and details designed with the best engineering practices. The ground-breaking IntegralBlade® and direct drive technologies have been deployed in the field for years, and many core components are already in play in turbines produced in large volumes.

Offshore wind power - how it all comes together at sea.
At 630 MW, London Array in the UK is currently the world's largest offshore wind power plant. It features 175 SWT-3.6-120 wind turbines.
The 288-MW DanTysk offshore wind power plant features 80 Siemens SWT-3.6-120 wind turbines. It is located in the German North Sea, 70 km west of the island of Sylt.
At 400 MW, Anholt is Denmark's largest wind power plant. Its 111 Siemens SWT-3.6-120 wind turbines are located approximately 20 km off the Danish coast.
Installed in 1991, Vindeby is the world's first offshore wind power plant. Consisting of 11 Siemens 450kW wind turbines, its performance continues to produce an output approximately 20% higher than comparable onshore installations.
