The 332MW Nordsee One offshore wind farm located in the German North Sea has produced and delivered its first kilowatt-hour to the mainland.

Innogy SE, the developer and one of the owners of the project, announced that the wind farm’s first Senvion 6.2M126 wind turbine started generating electricity and transferring it to the German onshore grid on Friday, 31 March 2017.

 

The first turbine was installed on 7 March 2017, approximately 40 kilometers north of Juist Island. The work is expected to be completed by June, and the entire wind farm to be fully operational by the end of 2017.

 

Up to now, MPI Enterprise, the installation vessel, has installed 7 of the 54 turbines.

 

When the Nordsee One is going to be fully functional, it will power supply more than 400,000 houses.

 

The wind farm is owned by Northland Power Inc (85%) and Innogy SE (15%).
