DONG Energy, the LEGO Group and William Demant have launched the Borkum Riffgrund 1 Offshore Wind Farm in Germany.
With a power per turbine of 4.0 MW, the 78 wind turbines are from this point on producing enough environmentally friendly electricity to supply 320,000 German households each year, the company said.
Located 37 kilometres north of the German island Borkum and 54 kilometres from the German coast, the wind turbines have a total nominal power of 312 MW.
Borkum Riffgrund 1 contributes considerably to the aim of the German government to install a total of 6.5 GW of offshore wind energy until the year 2020.
Almost 3 GW have been installed in the German North and Baltic Sea so far.
The planning of the offshore wind farm Borkum Riffgrund 1 began with the final investment decision in 2011. Construction of the wind farm started in August 2013.
