Wind Energy – Nordseecluster
Vestas has been appointed as the preferred wind turbine supplier for the up to 1.6 GW Nordseecluster wind project in Germany, a joint venture between RWE and Northland Power.
The cluster consists of four offshore wind project sites in the German North Sea, North of the island of Juist.
Vestas will provide 104 of its V236-15.0 MW offshore wind turbines. Once installed, Vestas will service the Nordseecluster under a multi-year Operations and Maintenance (O&M) service contract.
The Nordseecluster will be constructed in two phases. Two wind farms with a combined capacity of 660 MW are currently in the permit application phase. Turbine installation at sea is expected to start in 2026, with commercial operation in early 2027 (Nordseecluster A).
The two wind farm sites of the second phase (Nordseecluster B) will add a further 900 MW of capacity and are expected to be auctioned this year. For both sites, the Joint Venture of RWE and Northland Power holds step-in rights.
Offshore construction works for Nordseecluster B are scheduled to begin in 2028 with the commercial operation to start beginning of 2029.
