EnBW‘s Supervisory Board has now given the green light for the next offshore wind farm EnBW Albatros and approved the final decisions taken regarding construction and investment. EnBW Albatros already has binding approval for connection to the grid and will now be constructed together with the offshore wind farm EnBW Hohe See (497MW) that was approved in December 2016.

Albatros will feature 16 turbines of type Siemens SWT-7.0-154 and will have an installed capacity of 112MW. EnBW will realise both wind farms by 2019 as a joint project with a capacity of around 610MW. EnBW Albatros is located in the exclusive economic zone of the North Sea in the immediate vicinity of the EnBW wind farms Hohe See and He Dreiht on an area covering 11 square kilometres. Siemens has been appointed general contractor for the turbines, foundations and the transformer station. Geosea is the subcontractor responsible for the foundations. The contractual partner for the array cabling at the wind farm is VBMS.
