World premiere: Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm will install two turbines on Mono Buckets
Northland Deutsche Bucht GmbH announced today that the Deutsche
Bucht Mono Bucket pilot demonstrator ("Demo") project has reached financial close. In May, the
Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency of Germany (BSH) granted the Deutsche Bucht offshore
wind project the permit required to erect two additional pilot wind turbines using Mono Bucket
foundations. Deutsche Bucht will be the first offshore wind farm worldwide to test this new type of
foundation structure under commercial operating conditions. The foundations will be equipped with
V164-8.4 MW wind turbines by MHI Vestas. The two turbines will contribute an additional 17 MW of
capacity to the base 252 MW project for a total of 269 MW and 33 turbines.
