Westermeerwind Produces First Power

The Dutch 144MW Westermeerwind offshore wind farm has produced its first amount of electricity.

The milestone was achieved last week using the 44km of electricity cables installed by VBMS.

Also, Siemens has installed a total of 17 out of 48 of its 3 MW turbines.

When completed the 144MW wind farm will be able to produce electricity for 160,000 households.
