RWE has made a final investment decision to build two offshore wind farms with total capacity of more than 1.6GW in the German North Sea.

The company has committed to start building the 660MW Nordseecluster A project in 2025 and the 900MW Nordseecluster B project in 2027. They are due to be commissioned in 2027 and 2029.

Sven Utermöhlen, chief executive of offshore wind at RWE, said: “Our portfolio already includes six offshore wind farms off Germany’s coastlines. The Nordseecluster will add two more. This sends out a good signal for the energy transition in Germany and for RWE. With a total capacity of 1.6 gigawatts, these wind farms will generate around 6.5 terawatt hours of green electricity per year. This will contribute in particular to the decarbonisation of industry in our home market.”
