55,000 m2 in size
11 months realisation time
30 metre high production hall
This is a project on a huge scale, covering an area of about 55,000 m2, the equivalent of nine football fields. The final assembly of generators, hubs and nacelle back-ends will be carried out here. Together, these elements make up a complete nacelle, the heart of an offshore wind turbine. We are building a 30 metre high production hall, as well as a two-storey building with an area of around 3,800 m2, which will house offices and a canteen.
A construction record
The factory will be completed in just eleven months – a record time. To accomplish this, we must work with impressive speed. Production of the seven-megawatt offshore wind turbines will get under way in the summer of 2017. Building at this speed is only possible thanks to the close working relationship between Siemens Real Estate, Siemens Wind Power, Architect Brüning Rein and us (Ballast Nedam and Heitkamp Ingenieur und Kraftwerksbau GmbH).
A single team
Ballast Nedam and Heitkamp Ingenieur und Kraftwerksbau GmbH are both part of the Renaissance Group. Both companies already have decades of experience of working with Siemens across the globe. We know each other's strengths. That means we can work together as a single team, ensuring that Siemens receives the best possible value for money.
