Eleven offshore grid connection systems with a joint capacity of 6,232 megawatts (MW) for offshore wind energy transmission from sea to land have now been connected to the German power grid by transmission system operator TenneT.

“With this, TenneT has now almost entirely achieved the federal government’s expansion goal of having 6,500 megawatts of offshore wind capacity by 2020. Already this year, TenneT will exceed this goal since the completion of BorWin3 in the course of 2019 will put a total of 7,123 megawatts of transmission capacity into operation in the North Sea alone,” said TenneT Managing Director Wilfried Breuer.

By the end of 2023, DolWin6 will follow which will bring the available transmission capacity in the North Sea up to 8,032 MW. The wind energy transmitted from the North Sea by TenneT amounted to 16.75 terawatt hours (TWh) in 2018 – a new record.
