German engineering giant Siemens said Thursday it has won a contract worth 650 million euros ($862 million) to supply wind turbines to Norwegian power groups Statoil and Statkraft.
"Siemens Energy has received an order from the Norwegian energy utilities Statoil and Statkraft for the 'Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm' in Britain," the German group said in a statement.
Under the terms of the contract, Siemens will manufacture, deliver, install and commission 67 Siemens direct-drive wind turbines rated at 6 megawatts (MW) each and equipped with a 154-meter rotor.
Installation would start in early 2017, the statement said.
The Dudgeon offshore wind project, located 32 kilometres north of the city of Cromer in North Norfolk, is 70-percent owned by Statoil with Statkraft holding the other 30 percent.
