Deutsche Bucht (“DeBu”) Offshore Wind Farm
Energy source:
Wind
Type of facility:
Offshore Wind Farm
Stage:
Advanced Development
Expected COD:
End of 2019
Capacity:
252 MW
%Owned/Operated:
Northland has signed a definitive agreement to acquire 100%
Overview:
Northland has signed a definitive agreement to acquire 100% of the approximately EUR1.3 billion DeBu offshore wind project, and will play an active role throughout construction and operations. DeBu has a capacity of 252 MW, and is located 95 km west of Borkum in the German Exclusive Economic Zone, 77 km from Northland’s other German offshore wind project, Nordsee One.

Features:
  • Strong winds and approximately 40m water depth provide ideal conditions
  • Power contract with feed-in- tariff subsidy for approximately 13 years under the German Renewable Energy Act
  • Robust project returns meet Northland's investment criteria
  • Two-contract construction strategy: MHI Vestas has been selected as the preferred supplier to supply and install the turbines. Van Oord, the balance of plant contractor for Northland’s Gemini offshore wind farm and the other preferred supplier, will provide the turbine installation vessel and supply and install the wind turbine foundations and the offshore electrical infrastructure. MVOW will also maintain the turbines under a long-term service contract. DeBu will be connected to the 800 MW BorWin Beta off-shore converter station which has already been constructed.
