German offshore wind hits 520MW

Riffgat installation

the Riffgat wind farm is built, but not grid-connected

Germany connected 240MW of new offshore wind capacity to its grid last year, all of it in the North Seam, lifting its total to 520MW.

Another 395MW in capacity were erected in 2013 at three wind park sites that still lack a grid connection, Deutsche WindGuard said in a study commissioned by the German wind energy federation BWE and engineering industry group VDMA Power Systems.

At the end of the year, eight offshore wind parks were in construction in German waters, while another one - the 108MW Riffgat farm - was already completed, but not grid-connected. Those nine wind farms together will have a capacity of 2.4GW once they are commissioned throughout 2014 and 2015.
