Hamburg A Danish operator’s project includes 83 wind turbines rising more than 240 meters above sea level. The plant will be built on the islands of Borkum and Guist.
A large wind farm with a capacity of 900 megawatts is allowed to be built in the German Gulf.
The Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) in Hamburg has announced that it has issued the planning approval decision for the Borkum Riffgrund 3 project of the Danish company Örsted. The wind farm is located approximately 53 kilometers from the island of Borkum and 55 kilometers from the island of Joest in the North Sea.
83 wind turbines will be built on an area of 75 square kilometers. They will rise 242 meters above sea level. The rotors have a wingspan of 200 metres.
According to Ørsted, the park should start operating in 2024/25. The company then plans to use six wind farms to supply electricity to 2.5 million households in Germany.
