Northland Power has decided to permanently forego the installation of the Demonstrator Project using mono bucket foundations for two wind turbines as part of the Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm.
The installation of the Demonstrator Project was paused in the fourth quarter of 2019 following the identification of technical issues. An evaluation of the cause of the technical issues is underway and will not be completed until mid-year. Due to the timing issues associated with the technical review, among other considerations, Northland has made this decision. Deutsche Bucht will encompass the 31 monopile foundations and turbines, which were installed and operational, ahead of schedule, with a total productive capacity of 252 megawatts. The 31 turbines have generating power since the end of September 2019 and contributed pre-completion revenues in sales of $96 million in 2019.
