Nordsee 1 crosses finish line
Northland and Innogy start commercial operations at 332MW project
Northland Power and Innogy have started full commercial operations at the 332MW Nordsee 1 offshore wind farm in the German North Sea.
The project, located 40km off the island of Juist, was fully commissioned on schedule and below its total budget of €1.2bn, Innogy said.
The wind farm’s 54 Senvion 6.2M126 turbines have been sending power to the grid since September, the company added.
Northland Power owns 85% of the project, with Innogy the remaining 15%.
Northland Power chief executive Johan Brace said: “Today’s announcement represents another important achievement for Northland.
“The successful completion of our second offshore wind farm demonstrates Northland’s ability to deliver large-scale sustainable energy infrastructure that creates long-term value.”
