The wind farm’s first Senvion 6.2M126 wind turbine started producing electricity and feeding it to the mainland grid on Friday, 31 March.
The jack-up vessel MPI Enterprise installed the first turbine at the site located approximately 40 kilometres north of Juist Island on 7 March.

The wind farm is expected to be fully commissioned by the end of 2017.
