Wind Energy – Nordseecluster Foundations
RWE and Northland Power (developers of Nordseecluster) have selected Dajin Offshore as the preferred supplier for their up to 1.6-gigawatt (GW) cluster consisting of four offshore wind farm sites in the German North Sea.
The company will supply the foundations for all 104 offshore wind turbines. All deliverables are subject to the final investment decision for the individual phases of Nordseecluster (A and B).
Dajin Offshore is the largest private Chinese offshore wind manufacturer of foundations, transition pieces and offshore towers.
The Nordseecluster will be constructed in two phases. Two wind farms (N-3.8 and N-3.7) with a combined capacity of 660 megawatts (MW) are currently in the permit application phase. The foundation installation at sea is expected to start in 2025, with commercial operations starting in early 2027. Of the 104 foundations in total, 44 are reserved for this initial stage (Nordseecluster A). Two further wind farms (N-3.6 and N-3.5) of the second phase (Nordseecluster B) will add an additional 900 MW of capacity.
