Steel from Dillinger supports the Danish energy transition
Kriegers Flak is an offshore wind farm system in the Baltic Sea consisting of three wind farms, each located in the Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZs) of Denmark, Sweden and Germany, covering a total area of 132 m2. The Danish farm Kriegers Flak, located 15 to 40 km off the Danish coast, was inaugurated in September 2021, the German farm has been in operation since 2015 as the Baltic 2 offshore wind farm, and the Swedish part is still in the planning phase. It is named after the reef Kriegers Flak, which lies below sea level. The name “Kriegers Flak” relates to the Danish naval officer Christian Krieger and the Danish term flak for a shoal.
With an installed capacity of 604 MW, Kriegers Flak is Denmark's largest offshore wind farm to date. The 72 wind turbines with which it is equipped can supply approximately 600,000 Danish households annually with environmentally friendly electricity and increase Denmark's production of wind energy by around 16 percent.
The 72 Siemens Gamesa SWT-8.4-167 188 m high turbines are founded on monopiles foundations. Each monopile weighs approx. 800 t.
For these monopile foundation structures, Dillinger supplied approx. 45,000 t of heavy plate in thicknesses from 45 to 94 mm.
