Innogy adds Galloper boost
First power delivered from project that is now-rated at 353MW
German energy company Innogy has upgraded the power rating of its Galloper wind farm to 353MW from 336MW.
The developer said it had secured an extra 17MW of power across the project after working with Siemens Gamesa to boost the output of the project's 56 turbines to 6.3MW from 6MW.
Innogy also achieved first power at Galloper on 5 November.
“We have generated in record time having built the offshore part of the project in a single year which is a fantastic achievement. It has been a superb team effort from everyone involved,” said project director Toby Edmonds.
The developer has installed some 33 turbines at the project, with Swire Blue Ocean's Pacific Orca and Fred Olsen Windcarrier's Bold Tern are both on site continuing installation.
