As of today, 21 of the planned 33 turbines have been installed by turbine manufacturer MHI Vestas Offshore Wind. Now the Deutsche Bucht Offshore Wind Farm which is located about 95 kilometres to the northwest of the North Sea island of Borkum in Germany’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) has delivered its first electricity to the German grid.

“This is a great achievement for our Deutsche Bucht project,” said Jens Poulsen, Project Director of Northland Deutsche Bucht GmbH. “The rapid progress on installation and commissioning was made possible by the dedication of our team, combined with excellent cooperation by all partners, especially the grid operator and the BSH licensing authority,” Poulsen remarked.

Installation of the 33 turbines began earlier this year and all turbines are expected to be delivering energy to the grid by the end of 2019, as per schedule. Once operational, the 269MW Deutsche Bucht OWF will produce 1.1 billion kilowatt hours of eco-friendly energy each year, meeting the demand of approximately 328,000 households. The renewable energy produced by Deutsche Bucht will save 740,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions

Over the past few weeks, the installation and testing campaign for over 40 kilometres of internal cable was completed. The offshore substation of the wind farm was also successfully handed over to Northland by the Balance of Plant contractor Van Oord. The offshore substation had already been connected to the offshore converter station BorWin beta of grid operator TenneT, enabling the turbines to produce power.
