Gallery: Germany Aims Big with a 960-Megawatt Offshore Wind Farm

Map detailing location of Innogy Nordsee 1

When it comes to offshore wind farms in the North Sea, bigger is certainly better! RWE Innogy, a German-based company, recently acquired the rights to a 960 Megawatt offshore wind project from ENOVA Energieanlagen GmbH, a subsidiary of the ENOVA Group. The offshore wind farm, named Innogy Nordsee 1, is anticipated to run just under 4,000 full-load hours and with the ability to supply over 3 TWh (Terawatt-hours) of electricity per year! Consisting of up to 250 wind turbines planned, each with a capacity of 5 to 6 Megawatts, this will be Germany’s largest offshore wind farm.

    a very ambitious effort! it’s a good case study and biz model for others to follow. there are many interesting wind energy resources. see ten wind turbines at designapplause. there are several other wind enery posts on this site also.
