E.ON cuts production from Danish wind park after ice on turbines

E.ON AG, Germany’s largest utility, said its 207-megawatt Roedsand-2 offshore wind park in Denmark was operating at 130 megawatts capacity today because of ice on the turbines.

“Stopped turbines must be restarted at site which cannot be done at present weather conditions,” the Dusseldorf-based company said in a market message via the Nord Pool Spot AS exchange in Oslo at 12:49 p.m. local time.

The facility, which uses Siemens AG turbines, was completed in August. E.ON made an investment decision on the project in April 2008. It won a government tender to build the wind farm in 2006 with Danish partner Dong Energy A/S, which subsequently sold its 80 percent stake in the venture to E.ON.
