Gode Wind's location in the wind farms of the German Bight

Gode Wind 1, 2, and 3 are offshore wind farms located north-west of Norderney in the German sector of North Sea. They are owned by Ørsted.[2] Gode Wind 1 and 2 are operational, while Gode Wind 3 is being developed.

The projects were originally developed by PNE Wind AG who had received approvals for Gode Wind 1 and 2 from Germany's Federal Agency for Marine Shipping and Hydrography.[3] In August 2012, the projects were acquired by Dong Energy.[2]

Planning[edit]

The combined capacity of the three projects will be up to 900 MW.[2] Gode 1 has a capacity of 332 MW, Gode 2 has a capacity of 252 MW, and Gode 3 will have a capacity of 316 MW. Originally REpower Systems was to supply 54 6-MW turbines for Gode 1 and Vestas was to supply 84 3-MWturbines for Gode 2. These deals were re-tendered by DONG Energy,[4][5] which has contracted 154 direct-drive 6MW turbines from Siemens Wind Power.[6][7] The cable connection is 900 MW HVDC, capable of connecting other wind farms,[8] and connection to shore grid is guaranteed by TenneT.[9] The underwater noise was monitored during construction.[10] The platform called Dolwin Beta was installed in August 2015.[11]

Gode Wind 1 & 2[edit]

On 18 November 2013, DONG announced the decision to invest €2.2 billion in Gode 1 & 2. The wind farm is eligible for the Stauchungsmodell support regime, and the electricity price is fixed for 10 years.[9][12] Bladt Industries will supply the foundations, with a diameter of 6 meters.[13] Gode 1 & 2 consist of a total of 97 Siemens SWT-6.0-154 turbines generating up to 582 MW.[14] The projects were officially commissioned in June 2017.[15]
