DONG Energy has decided to build the German offshore wind farm Borkum Riffgrund 2, which is expected to be fully commissioned in the first half of 2019.
Borkum Riffgrund 2 will have a total capacity of 450MW and will feature 56 units of MHI Vestas’ 8MW wind turbines with rotor spans of 164 meters. DONG Energy is currently the sole owner of the project and they intend to divest up to 50% of the project at a later stage. Borkum Riffgrund 2 will be located 54 kilometres off the coast of Lower Saxony, next to Borkum Riffgrund 1.
