Permit for 400 MW Borkum West 2

The proposed 400 MW Borkum West 2 offshore wind power project in the North Sea is the 21st to win a construction permit from Germany's federal shipping office, Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie, bringing the combined capacity of approved wind developments in German waters to 7 GW. The project, to comprise 80 Multibrid 5 MW turbines, will be located 45 kilometres north of the island of Borkum and 44 kilometres north-west of the island of Juist, where the water depth averages 30 metres. If construction has not begun by the end of 2011, the permit will be rescinded. Prokon Nord Energiesysteme developed the project, although Trianel European Energy Trading, a grouping of predominantly German municipal utilities, is the major shareholder, having acquired a 300 MW stake in January.
