Baltic offshore plans

Plans for Germany's first offshore wind plant are progressing but have not moved much beyond the speculation phase. The Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania government has suggested a site for a 15-20 MW plant off the Baltic coast three to five miles offshore between Kühlungsborn and Rostock-Warnemünde. The wind farm is being regarded as a demonstration project. Its three planners -- wind turbine manufacturer Nordex Balcke-Dürr, Neptun Technoproduct (NTP) of Rostock and Nordwind in Neubrandenburg -- estimate the project will cost DEM 60 million, with construction beginning in 1999. NTP develops wind farms and builds and markets turbines under licence for Südwind Energiesysteme of Berlin. Nordwind took over development of the Ventis 500 kW machine when Ventis Energietechnik ran into financial trouble in 1996.
