E.ON’s offshore wind farm Amrumbank West has been officially put into operation. During an event at the harbor museum in Hamburg, E.ON CEO Johannes Teyssen, Hamburg’s First Mayor Olaf Scholz, the Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy Uwe Beckmeyer, the Mayor of Helgoland Jörg Singer and Project Manager Dominik Schwegmann symbolically started power generation at sea.
The offshore-wind farm Amrumbank West is situated 35 kilometers north of Helgoland. It has an installed capacity of 302MW. Renewables are one of the pillars of new E.ON’s strategy. The other two future business areas are energy networks and customer solutions. At the beginning of the year E.ON spun off its conventional energy assets, most notably conventional power plants and global energy trading into a separate company called Uniper.
