Northland Power has completed the acquisition of the 252MW DeBu wind farm in the German North Sea from British Wind Energy.

The Canadian group said it expects to invest about $400m in the €$1.3b development, sourced from cash and debt. 

The rest of the project financing will be sourced from non-recourse finance debt and pre-completion revenues.

Northland said it's still investigating the addition of two demonstration turbines using suction bucket foundations.

Their development would add an extra 17MW of capacity and €100m to the total project cost.

The acquisition of DeBu was first flagged in March.
