DONG Energy to build German offshore wind farm Borkum Riffgrund 2
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. With this decision, DONG Energy will reach 6.7GW of installed offshore wind capacity, exceeding the 2020 target of 6.5GW installed capacity. Borkum Riffgrund 2 will have a total export capacity of 450MW, and will feature the largest wind turbines in German waters: 56 units of MHI Vestas’ 8MW wind turbines with rotor spans of 164 meters. The offshore wind farm will supply CO2-free power corresponding to the annual electricity consumption of approximately 460,000 German households. ….
