July 3, 2024

Luxcara has picked Chinese turbine maker MingYang Smart Energy to supply 18.5MW turbines for the 296MW Waterkant offshore wind project in the German North Sea.

The German asset manager said it has picked the MingYang machines following an international tender, and is due to begin installation at the project in 2028.

Holger Matthiesen, project director at Luxcara and managing director of project company Waterkant Energy, said: “By deciding for the world’s most powerful offshore wind turbine, we will be able to expedite Germany’s energy transition while fostering much-needed competition in the industry. In any case, management, operation and control of the Waterkant wind farm will remain entirely in the hands of an independent German company.”
