The Alpha Ventus wind farm is found in the German North Sea and was brought online in 2009. Alpha Ventus is closest to the area of North of Borkum and is operated by Vattenfall Europe AG.
by way of depths it is situated in waters with a maximum depth of metres. The majority of the German projects are built in deeper waters together with the turbines using jacket or tripod foundations.
It features a nameplate capacity of 60MW and was produced by EWE AG.
The German offshore industry is second only to the UK regarding development. This is despite the limited coastline available.
Most of the German projects use Bard or Senvion wind turbines. Really the only other is the M5000 developed by Multibrid.
