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]

Baltic 2[edit]

Cable supplier NKT Holding was 3 months late with the delivery for Baltic1, therefore the €195m cable order for EnBW Baltic 2 was granted to General Cable instead.[6] 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 Siemens 3.6MW turbines.[7] Baltic2 will be connected to Germany via Baltic1, but also to Denmark via Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm around 2018,[8] creating a 400MW offshore grid.[9] The cable to Denmark costs €350m, of which €150m comes from the EU.[10]

The 1250m Baltic2 produced power in September 2015.[11][12]
