WindMW, a joint venture between Blackstone Energy Partners and Windland Energieerzeugungs, has completed the construction of a 288MW offshore wind farm Meerwind Süd │Ost, 23km north of Helgoland, Germany.
The company has installed its 80th and final offshore turbine and a 3,500-tonne offshore converter substation for the project within the last day.
Built with an investment of about €1.2bn, the project will provides clean energy to around 360,000 households, while offsetting one million tons of carbon emissions per year.
WindMW CEO Jens Assheuer said the completion of the project on schedule and at the highest quality standards is a result of the contributions of all parties involved.
"I would like to thank the project’s investors, staff, suppliers and other stakeholders for their significant commitment and support," added Assheuer.
Blackstone Energy Partners senior managing director Sean Klimczak said, "We are very pleased to have reached this important project milestone, bringing Germany one step closer to meeting its green energy targets."
