Nordsee Ost's location in the wind farms of the German Bight
Nordsee-Ost offshore wind farm is an offshore wind farm under construction in the eastern part of the North Sea German sector. The project is developed by RWE Innogy, a subsidiary of RWE.
The wind farm will consist of 48 turbines with a total capacity of 295 MW. 6.15 MW turbines are to be provided by REpower. Steel foundations for generators will be supplied by Aker Verdal. Power converters will be supplied by Woodward Governor Company. A consortium of Siemens and Prysmian will built the high-voltage direct current submarine cable from the wind farm to the German transmission system operated by Transpower, a subsidiary of TenneT.
Delays in power line construction by Dutch TenneT are expected to delay its operational start. Diesel burning generators will be used to prevent the wind blades snd gears from falling apart.
