EnBW Baltic 1 is the first commercial offshore wind farm of Germany in the Baltic Sea. Siemens supplied 21 SWT 2.3-93 wind turbines for the 48.3 megawatt wind farm.[1] EnBW Baltic 1 is located about 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) north of the Darss-Zingst Peninsula and covers about seven square kilometers. Work started in July 2010;[2][3] the wind farm was officially commissioned on 2 May 2011.[4]

Cable supplier NKT Holding was 3 months late with the delivery, therefore the €195m cable order for EnBW Baltic 2 was granted to General Cable instead.[5] However, in August 2011, NKT got the Baltic 2 cable contract anyway, and is to deliver the Köln-produced 60 km 150 kV AC cable in 2013 at a price of EUR100 million. EnBW Baltic 2 will be 288 MW from 80 turbines.[6]
