The energy supply of the future
Until now, 50Hertz has received 21 grid connection applications for offshore wind farms (OWF) for the German part of the Baltic Sea. They should generate more than 5,000 megawatts (MW) - approximately corresponding to the energy produced in five conventional large-scale power.
From sea to the onshore transmission grid
50Hertz is responsible for the connection to the grid of all wind farms located in the Baltic Sea and which construction starts before the end of 2015.
A premiere on the German Baltic coast
EnBW Baltic 1, the first commercial offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea, has officially started to operate since the 2nd of May. The 21 wind turbines each generate 2.3 MW, producing a total of approximately 50 MW. Around 50,000 households can be supplied with this electricity.
