EnBW has completed 44 of the 87 wind turbines in its adjacent North Sea wind farms, Hohe See and Albatros. Installation vessels “Brave Tern” and “Blue Tern” load the components for four wind turbines at a time at the port of Esbjerg in Denmark and attach them offshore to foundations already installed in the seabed.
Since 2010, the energy company based in Karlsruhe has been constructing state-of-the-art and efficient wind farms at sea in order to push forward the Energiewende on land. The total of 87 wind turbines with 609 megawatts of installed output are due to be connected to the grid by the end of 2019 and will produce as much energy as a modern gas power plant. The green electricity generated by the wind farms will cover the aggregate requirements of all the private households in Munich.
