RWE, Northland team up to develop offshore wind cluster in Germany

10 Jan 2022

RWE has partnered with Canada's Northland Power to build a 1.3GW offshore wind farm cluster in the German North Sea.

Located in the north of the island of Juist, in Lower Saxony, Germany, the cluster will include the 433 MW N-3.8 (Nordsee 2) site, the 420 MW N-3.5 (Nordsee 3) site and the 480 MW N-3.6 (Delta Nordsee) site.

RWE and Northland Power have already secured Nordsee 2 in the latest German offshore wind auction. The other two leases are anticipated to be auctioned in 2023.

Following the partnership, Northland will gain access to the Delta Nordsee site, of which RWE has step-in rights for 100% of the lease, while RWE will increase its position in the other two sites.

The two firms will develop, build and operate the cluster through a joint venture, in which RWE Renewables will own a 51% stake and Northland Power 49%

The cluster is expected to start commercial operations between 2026 and 2028.
