Amrumbank West OWF Fully Operational

All 80 turbines at Amrumbank West offshore wind farm are connected to the network. With its full installed capacity of 288 megawatts now operational, Amrumbank West can produce enough climate-friendly power to meet the needs of 300,000 households.

Amrumbank West, fully owned by E.ON, is located in the German North Sea about 40 kilometers from the island of Helgoland, where the operations and maintenance center for the wind farm is located.

The company invested EUR 1 billion in the project. Offshore construction began in January 2014, and the first turbine began generating electricity in May 2015.

“We’ve commissioned two large offshore wind farms – Amrumbank West and Humber Gateway off the U.K. coast – in just one year,” E.ON Management Board member Bernhard Reutersberg said. “Both were completed on time and on budget, which underscores our ability to expand renewables.”

In May, E.ON announced its decision to move forward with Rampion, a 400 megawatt project off the south coast of England. Construction will begin in January 2016.
