Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Some perspective:

The project is actually a near shore inter-tidal project, significant that it's the first one with western turbines. (The project also uses Sinovel's 3MW machine, so someone will have some serious comparable data.)

The Siemens turbine is not an offshore turbine, it's a larger rotor version of an onshore turbine used for over a decade, which has also been used on some early Danish and British near shore projects.

What's significant is that the project owner/operator at least will have some very strong comparable data on the performance and reliability of the two turbines.
