Amprion Offshore GmbH starts planning the Windader West energy corridor. The power connection should bring up to eight gigawatts of power from offshore wind energy directly to North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW).
It includes the four offshore grid connection systems NOR-15-1, 17-1, 19-1 and 21-1. The submarine cables begin in the wind farms in the North Sea and are bundled as underground cables from the coast to their grid connection points in the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region. In 2032, the first two gigawatts of offshore capacity are to flow to North Rhine-Westphalia via a line from Windader West. The remaining three lines are scheduled to go into operation in 2033, 2034 and 2036.
