Final turbine installed at Kaskasi OWF
The 38th and final Siemens Gamesa turbine has been installed at RWE’s Kaskasi wind farm.
The OWF is located 35 kilometres northwest of Heligoland in the German sector of the North Sea, in water depths of between 18 and 25 metres. While two-thirds of installed turbines were already generating green energy, the entire wind farm is expected to be operational by the end of the year. The 342 MW wind farm will then supply electricity to over 400,000 households.
This is the first new OWF commissioned in Germany since 2019. The wind farm also boasts of the world’s first recyclable rotor blades, Siemens Gamesa’s 81 metres-long RecyclableBlade. Made with a specific type of resin, the component materials can be separated and reused in other applications, in the automotive industry or in consumer goods for example.
