German utility EnBW has started construction of its Hohe See and Albatros arrays in the North Sea that jointly will have a capacity of 609MW, and theoretically produce enough electricity to supply a city the size of Munich.

“EnBW Hohe See and Albatros together are the biggest offshore project currently being built in Germany,” says Dirk Güsewell, head of portfolio development at EnBW.

The installation vessel Pacific Osprey currently is being loaded with 72-metre long foundations in the Dutch port of Vlissingen and after a 12-hour trip will reach the site of Hohe See, 95km north of the island of Borkum.
