RWE Innogy received the permits for the Innogy Nordsee offshore wind farm 2 and 3.
The German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) approved the construction of 108 additional wind turbines located some 40 kilometres north of the island of Juist.
Innogy Nordsee 2 will consist of 48 wind turbines and Innogy Nordsee 3 of 60 wind turbines.
In April 2012, the BSH had granted RWE Innogy the permit for Innogy Nordsee 1, the first of the three wind farms, consisting of 54 wind turbines. The wind farm’s construction field covers 100 square kilometres in total. The permits allow for a total of up to 162 wind turbines with an installed capacity of approx. 1,000 megawatts (MW) to be built in this area.
