About Borkum West II offshore wind:
The project concerns the installation of the first large-size offshore wind farm in the German Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of the North Sea. The wind farm area itself (~55 km2) is located about 45 km north of the East Frisian Island Borkum. Borkum is the largest and westernmost of these islands, north of The Netherlands. The planned capacity will be up to 400 MWe, and given the predicted wind resources of around 3,500 equivalent full load hours it would result in a yearly net production of approximately up to 1,300 GWh.
