DONG Energy and Siemens Project Ventures to join UK offshore wind farm project

Joint Venture to acquire a 50% stake of a 270 MW UK offshore wind farm project Lincs from UK energy company Centrica

DONG Energy and Siemens Project Ventures (SPV), a Division company of Siemens Financial Services, have signed a Joint Venture contract to acquire a 50 percent stake of the offshore wind farm project Lincs, currently owned by UK energy company Centrica, against payment of 50 percent of the incurred development costs, currently estimated to EUR 55 million (GBP 50 million). The parties will acquire the 50% stake in the Lincs project through an equally owned company. Completion of the transaction is expected in January 2010. DONG Energy’s and SPV’s aggregated 50 % share of the project represents a capital investment of approximately EUR 417 million (approximately GBP 375 million). The estimated investment level is net of anticipated proceeds from the disposal of assets under the offshore transmission regime (OFTO).

The Lincs project, which has a permitted capacity of up to 270 MW, is situated eight kilometres off the coast of the town Skegness, Lincolnshire, in eastern England. The project is currently in the final design and procurement phase. Construction of the project is expected to commence in the late summer of 2010, with commissioning scheduled for 2012. Centrica will continue to own 50% of the company and will be the leading partner of the project.

It is anticipated that the wind farm will be capable of meeting the annual electricity needs of 200,000 households and would significantly reduce carbon emissions.

“Lincs is an attractive project that will benefit from the UK Government’s enhanced financial framework for offshore wind. The project is well suited for using the newest technology within offshore wind turbines. At DONG Energy, we look forward to broaden and strengthen our collaboration with Centrica,” says Anders Eldrup, Chief Executive Officer of DONG Energy.

“This investment is a logical step in further strengthening our environmental portfolio by providing yet another good example for the combination of sustainable technologies with economic efficiency”, says Johannes Schmidt, CEO Equity Investments & Project Finance of Siemens Financial Services. “Centrica is a leading developer of offshore wind energy in UK and we welcome the opportunity to working together on sustainable technologies.”

In fiscal year 2009, Siemens’ environmental technologies generated revenue of nearly €23 billion, roughly 30% of the company’s total. By 2010, the company intends to increase the share of environmental technologies to around € 25billion.
