Map RWEs Offshore wind portfolio in GermanyRWE has become the sole owner of a 1.6GW cluster of offshore wind farms in the German North Sea. The Nordseecluster, consisting of four sites located north of the island of Juist, was formerly co-developed with Canadian company Northland Power, which has now sold its 49% shareholding in the cluster to RWE.
The parties agreed on a purchase price of approximately €35 million. The Nordseecluster will be constructed in two phases (Nordseecluster A and B). Two wind farms (N-3.8 and N-3.7, called Nordseecluster A) with a combined capacity of 660MW are currently in the permit application phase. For Nordseecluster A offshore works are expected to start in 2025, with commercial operations starting in early 2027. The two further wind farms (N-3.6 and N-3.5) of the second phase (Nordseecluster B) are expected to add an additional 900MW of capacity as of 2029. For both sites of Nordseecluster B, RWE plans to bid and to exercise its step-in rights in the German government’s offshore wind auctions this year. Preferred suppliers of main components for all four sites have been selected, with Vestas, for example, delivering 104 offshore wind turbines with a capacity of 15 MW each. The Nordseecluster will be in close proximity to the existing 332MW Nordsee One wind farm, which RWE will continue to operate jointly with Northland Power.
