RWE, Northland to establish 1.3GW of tumultuous offshore wind in Germany

German utility RWE and Canadian developer Northland Power join forces for the development of a German offshore wind cluster of just over 1.3GW. In the same region where the two companies already jointly own the Nordsee One wind farm, they are going to establish three farms of a respective 433MW, 420MW and 480MW, the companies state.

"The formation of the cluster aligns with our offshore wind ambitions and strategy of growing our position as a global leader in offshore wind," says Northland Power President and Chief Executive Mike Crawley, while RWE Offshore Wind CEO Sven Utermöhlen says that "considerable synergies" may be achieved in the cluster.
