A new service and operation station for the 295MW Nordsee Ost offshore wind farm in the German North Sea has been opened by RWE.
Located on the tiny North Sea island of Heligoland, it is a two-storey building and includes a storage hall, offices and workshop space.
The wind farm will have an installed capacity of 295MW and generate enough electricity to power around 300,000 homes every year.
Hans Bünting, Managing Director of RWE Innogy said: “With such a project we are pursuing a conclusive overall concept for the recreational island of Heligoland, which has renewable energy generation and sustainable building go hand in hand.”
Earlier this week RWE’s renewable arm Innogy announced it is selling 85% of its share in Nordsee One, Two and Three wind farms.
