Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm — high-performance in the middle of the North Sea

Deutsche Bucht is Canada-based independent power producer Northland Power’s third offshore wind farm. The offshore wind project is located in the North Sea, more than 100 kilometres from the mainland in the German Exclusive Economic Zone. The consistently high winds in the region provide an optimal energy yield. The wind farm uses one of the most powerful offshore turbines currently available – MHI Vestas’ 8.4 MW. Approximately 1.1 billion kilowatt hours of climate-friendly electricity are forecasted to be generated per year. This is enough to meet the needs of approximately 328,000 households.

26 November: Installation of the first of two Mono Buckets at our Deutsche Bucht project has been paused due to a technical issue and for further evaluation. As the Mono Bucket installations are part of a pilot project designed to test this technology, this pause does not impact the 31 turbines that make up the main project.
