EWE, Trianel take preliminary decision on 203MW Borkum II wind farm in German North Sea

Published 12 December 2016

German energy companies, EWE and Trianel have taken the preliminary decision on the development of the 203MW offshore wind farm in the German North Sea.

The companies will each hold 37.5% of the Trianel Borkum II offshore wind farm.

Negotiations are underway with interested third-party investors for the remaining 25% interest.

A final investment decision is scheduled to be taken in the first half of next year and construction is expected to begin in early 2018. 

The wind farm will be connected to the grid by the end of 2019.It is estimated to produce about 800 million kilowatt hours of energy per year.

EWE CEO Matthias Brückmann noted that the companies are delighted to invest in the construction of this economically attractive project.

The company will continue with the expansion of this project along with their own projects including Alpha Ventus offshore and Riffgat offshore wind farms.

The proposal to develop the offshore wind project started in 2015. The joint venture technical manager Irina Lucke noted that the venture has achieved important milestones which include conditional supply and service contracts for the wind farm’s foundation structures and inner-park cabling.

The wind turbine is expected to feature 32 turbines to be supplied from German manufacturer Senvion, each with a capacity of 6.3MW of energy output. They will be installed on monopoles and connected to the already existing park-internal substation platform.
