Eos Offshore wins permit for German North Sea project

Eos Offshore, a joint venture between German wind project developers WPD and Innovent, has won construction approval from the federal shipping office Bundesamt für Schifffahrt for the 80 turbine pilot phase of the Hochsee Windpark Nord-see, to be sited 90 kilometres off Borkum, one of the seven East Frisian islands in the North Sea, and 150 kilometres from the German mainland. While the permit runs for 25 years, it can be revoked if installation does not begin before October 2009, although an extension to this deadline is possible. The offshore wind project, which will cost around EUR 1 billion and is the 12th to get a permit in the German exclusive economic zone of the North Sea, still needs permits for the cable link to shore.
