Siemens Gamesa, wind turbine manufacturer, has been contracted to supply an offshore wind project in the UK with 100 units of its 14MW turbines.

Developed by German energy company innogy, the 1.4GW Sofia offshore wind farm, could harness clean energy to power more than one million homes on completion.

Siemens Gamesa will also provide service and maintenance to the turbines, as part of the order by innogy.

CEO of Siemens Gamesa, Andreas Nauen said: “As an economic recovery around the globe safely and slowly begins, we’re confident that offshore wind power will strongly contribute to providing jobs and energy stability at attractive prices.”

The turbine installation is expected to be completed by early 2024.
