German utility RWE has selected Siemens Gamesa as preferred turbine supplier for its 1GW Thor offshore wind project in Denmark.

The OEM is slated to supply 72 of its SG 14-236 DD machines, subject to a final investment decision by the developer. The order comes with service contract for the wind turbines.

“Our partnership [with RWE] already encompasses 12 offshore wind projects in both operation and development, totalling over 5.1GW of capacity in several countries,” Siemens Gamesa offshore business chief executive Marc Becker said.
