The Last Wind Turbine is Erected at the Dan Tysk Offshore Wind Farm

Dan Tysk Offshore Wind Farm

Yesterday, with the installation of the last of 80 turbines an important milestone is reached for the DanTysk offshore project.  The  wind farm, erected by Vattenfall and Stadtwerke München (SWM) 70 km west of the island of Sylt, eighty Siemens wind turbines in the 3.6 megawatt (MW) class were constructed, with a maximum rotor tip height above sea level of just under 150 metres.

Vattenfall began erecting the first wind turbine in mid-April this year. The installation of the 80 turbines could be completed in about four month, not least because of the good weather conditions on the North Sea.

“We are delighted that the 80 wind turbines in the DanTysk offshore wind farm could be set up so quickly. Additionally particularly positive is that the inter array cable installation between the turbines and the offshore substation went smoothly.” said Gunnar Groebler, Head of the Renewables Business Unit for Vattenfall’s Continental/UK region.

Christian Vogt, Head of Corporate Investment Management at Stadtwerke München, said: “The erection of the last turbine in the DanTysk project could be completed as scheduled and is an important step on the way to the implementing of the whole wind farm. The successful construction progress on this project allows us to look forward to the next joint project “Sandbank” from SWM and Vattenfall which will be placed in the neighborhood.”

The DanTysk offshore wind farm covers an area of 70 square kilometres (approximately 7,000 football pitches) in the German Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) on the border to Danish territorial waters. The wind farm has an installed capacity of 288 megawatts (MW) and will generate power, with very low greenhouse emissions, equivalent to the consumption of up to 400,000 households. DanTysk is a joint venture of Vattenfall (51%) and Stadtwerke München (49%).

    SUPERNOVA POWER! Chemonuclear Fusion is a type of low energy nuclear fusion that has been shown to produce energy in two experiments. Aneutronic nuclear fusion can provide unlimited electric power without polluting the environment with radioactive waste and greenhouse emissions. Chemonuclear processes in small dense white dwarf stars accelerate the rate of nuclear fusion and cause them to explode in spectacular supernova explosions.

    The mission of the Chemonuclear Fusion Project is to raise awareness of this new and vitally important source of environmentally clean energy and to promote research and development.

    The Chemonuclear Fusion Project is soliciting volunteers to help our crowdfunding and educational campaigns. Our crowdfunding webpages will soon be up and running. We want people to post to discussion groups and help us get the word out that aneutronic chemonuclear fusion might be the radiation free way to power the world if we can get the funding to build and test reactors.

    Artists can help us design T-shirts, mugs, and promotional items to sell and give away to our contributors. Writers to write promotional materials and post to web forums are also wanted. Video producers and professional and amateur scientists who can help the public understand the concepts of chemonuclear fusion are encouraged to contact us also.
