German utility EnBW has fully connected the Albatros wind farm in the North See to the grid, which together with the adjacent Hohe See array forms Germany’s largest operating offshore wind complex with a capacity of 609MW.

EnBW had put Hohe See into operation already in October 2019.


The power produced by Hohe See and Albatros is enough to supply all households to a city the size of Munich, Germany’s third-largest with 1.5m inhabitants.


EnBW owns a majority state of 50.1% in the twin offshore arrays, while Canadian infrastructure company Enbridge holds another 49.9%.
