Construction of the largest offshore wind project in Germany begins

German energy utility EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg (EnBW) has begun construction of the Hohe See and Albatros windfarms in the North Sea.

According to the project schedule, a transformer station and foundations will be installed at the Hohe See site, and the cables for the windfarm will be laid this year, reports Power Technology.

The wind turbines and the transformer station at the Albatros windfarm will be erected by next year.

With 87 wind turbines and a combined output capacity of 609 MW, the project is said to be the largest offshore wind project in Germany.

Upon completion in 2019, it will have the capacity to generate 2.5 billion kilowatt hours of electricity a year.
