Siemens today announced its wind deal with Veja Mate Offshore to supply 67 wind turbines.

The company did not share the financial details of the wind turbine deal.

As per the wind agreement, Siemens will install 67 of its 6-megawatts offshore wind turbines with a total capacity of 402 megawatts at the Veja Mate Offshore wind power plant in the German North Sea.

The wind deal also included a 15-year service and maintenance agreement. The service agreement is a record for Siemens in Germany. Siemens said the service deal is the largest for the company in Germany and second largest in the world.

In a statement, Siemens said it will provide offshore service logistics concept, tailored for far-shore projects such as Veja Mate that uses both helicopters and a customized service operation vessel (SOV). The fifth SOV to be deployed by Siemens in European waters will ensure increased energy production.

The location of the 400-megawatts offshore project in German Waters is the North Sea northwest of Borkum island at 115 km from the shore. The company will install the wind project at water depths ranging from 39 to 41 meters. The site has average wind speeds of more than 10 meters per second at a hub height of 80 meters above sea level.

BorWin2 will provide grid access, while Siemens will build a HVDC grid connection. BorWin 2 was handed over to operator TenneT early this year and is already in commercial operation. Its 800 megawatts capacity encompasses the grid connection for both Veja Mate and also the Global Tech I offshore wind farms, said Siemens.
