See these great pictures of the 1st offshore installation of #Siemens 6 MW #wind turbine off the #British coast:

The installation of the first two 6 megawatt wind turbines in the offshore wind power plant Gunfleet Sands III with the specially designed installation vessel SEA INSTALLER marks an important milestone for Siemens. The company is in the vanguard in the field of offshore wind turbine technology and has also played a pioneering role in the challenging area of offshore installation of wind turbines. Its purpose in all these endeavors is to further reduce the costs of wind energy and so enable wind power to compete with traditional energy sources. Apart from innovations such as the new gearless six-megawatt wind turbine, another important leverage factor is the systematic industrialization of offshore logistics.
