Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
rwe | Investment decision made: RWE to build wind farms with capacity of 1.6 GW off German North Sea coast, illustrated
Sven Utermöhlen, CEO RWE Offshore Wind: "Our portfolio already includes six offshore wind farms off Germany's coastlines. The Nordseecluster will add two more. This sends out a good signal for the energy transition in Germany and for RWE. With a total capacity of 1.6 gigawatts, these wind farms will generate around 6.5 terawatt hours of green electricity per year. This will contribute in particular to the decarbonisation of industry in our home market."

The Nordseecluster is being implemented in two phases - Nordseecluster A and B. Nordseecluster A has a total capacity of 660 MW. Manufacturing of some key components has already started. Construction at sea is scheduled to begin next year. By the beginning of 2027, all 44 wind turbines shall be connected to the grid. Nordseecluster B will add a further 900 MW of capacity. The 60 turbines are scheduled to start commercial operation from the beginning of 2029.
