Four Siemens semi-offshore wind turbines in Denmark have reached the significant milestone of having each generated 100 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity since being installed in 2003. This is also a world record for the company. The combined production of 400 million kWh is enough clean energy to power over 100,000 average Danish households for one year.
The four SWT 2.3-82 turbines are located at the Roenland wind project in northwest Denmark, operated by Driftselskabet Rønland Havvindmøllepark I/S, and have consistently been some of the most productive wind turbines in the world.
