An E.ON offshore wind farm in the German North Sea has started producing power.
Called Amrumbank West, it recently installed the last of the foundations for its 80 turbine towers and will be completed this year.
The service centre where the operation and maintenance of the wind farm is monitored and managed has also been completed.
Amrumbank West is one of two new offshore wind projects by E.ON as their other wind farm, Humber Gateway, began to export power in February.
Eckhardt Rümmler from E.ON’s Renewables unit said: “The synergies and experience from the two projects will help us make this technology more economic.”
Together the wind farms will be able to supply around 470,000 households with green power and displace 1.3 million metric tons of carbon dioxide a year.
