Offshore wind energy from EnBW

Power for a
sustainable future

The future belongs to renewable energies. And offshore wind power has a key role as we transition to delivering ecological energy. That’s why we’re pressing ahead at full speed in this challenging field – and heading into uncharted waters together with our committed team. Our goal: the sustainable generation of climate-friendly electricity.

Baltic 1

The 21 turbines of the wind farm – located 16 kilometres north of the Darß-Zingst peninsula – have a total capacity of 48.3 megawatts and generate around 185 million kilowatt hours of electricity each year, which is enough to supply 50,000 households. At the same time, harmful CO2 emissions to the environment are reduced by 167,000 tonnes.

Baltic 2

The EnBW Baltic 2 offshore wind farm was commissioned in summer 2015, becoming the next (nautical) milestone on the company’s course en route to the future of energy: four times larger than EnBW Baltic 1 and capable of generating six times as much electricity.

Hohe See & Albatros

EnBW Hohe See and Albatros also represented the largest investment in the history of EnBW – around €2.2 billion. The site covers an area of 42 square kilometres around 95 kilometres north of Borkum and 100 kilometres north-west of Helgoland – another quantum leap compared with the EnBW Baltic projects

He Dreiht

EnBW He Dreiht is one of the largest offshore projects planned in Europe and pioneering in the industry. Construction is scheduled to start on the 60-square-kilometre site in 2023, with commissioning of a total output of 900 megawatts planned for 2025.

Morgan und Mona

These two neighboring wind farms in the Irish Sea – approximately 30 km from the coast – are a joint project involving EnBW and bp, set to be completed by around 2028. The wind turbines will have a total output of around 3 GW, making it possible to supply roughly 3.4 million households with electricity.

Morven

Work on constructing the Morven wind farm off the east coast of Scotland – around 60 km from Aberdeen – is set to begin in 2026/27. Once this joint project involving EnBW and bp has been completed, around 2.9 GW of power will be available to supply an estimated three million households with electricity.
