OWC Completes Wind Condition Assessment Offshore Germany
Offshore Wind Consultants (OWC) has completed the analysis and assessment of wind conditions for future German offshore wind tendering site N-6.7.
The analysis, completed with Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy Systems (IWES) and ProPlanEn, was conducted via three work packages.
The plausibility and consistency checks of the short-term (one year) measurement data, that was acquired in the framework of another project, were followed by corrections for the influence of neighbouring wind farms on the wind field and the establishment of long-term relations to the historic long-term data.
Finally, a spatial wind field analysis was conducted, with detailed reporting on statistical evaluation and description of the meteorological conditions.
The study’s outcome has now been published by the German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH), within the scope of the site before the bid date on 1 August 2023.
The data can be utilised by project developers, energy suppliers, and banks in conjunction with the project financing of offshore wind farms.
The German Offshore Wind Energy Act for offshore wind energy has set an adjusted target of 30 GW by 2030, 40 GW by 2035, and 70 GW by 2045. This goal is to be achieved through tenders in accordance with the German Renewable Sources Act.
The N-6.7 area is located some 100 kilometres northwest of the island Borkum. The area is expected to support a capacity of up to 270 MW, while the N-6.6 up to 630 MW.
Both areas are planned to be put out to tender in September 2024 and put into operation in 2029.
