OWC, an ABL Group company, has completed a project for the German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie/BSH) to analyse and assess wind conditions for a future German offshore wind tendering site N-6.7.
OWC assembled a team of internal experts and external cooperation partners, including Fraunhofer IWES and ProPlanEn, to assess the historic wind potential across the German Exclusive Economic Zone in the North Sea. The study’s outcome has now been published by BSH within the scope of the site before the bid date on 1 August 2023. The data can be utilised by project developers, energy suppliers and banks in conjunction with the project financing of offshore wind farms. The German Offshore Wind Energy Act (Windenergie-auf-See-Gesetz) for offshore wind energy has set an adjusted target of 30 GW by 2030 and 70 GW by 2045. This goal is to be achieved through tenders in accordance with the German Renewable Energy Sources Act (Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz).
