E.On's Amrumbank West offshore wind farm in Germany Now Operational

German offshore wind energy giant E.ON SE continues to enlarge its portfolio as it has completed the construction of Amrumbank West offshore wind farm and a total of 80 turbines are successfully connected to the grid.

Amrumbank West is located 40kms from Helgoland island in German North sea. The 288 MW project produces enough power to serve the needs of about 300,000 households and displace more than 740,000 metric tons of carbon emissions annually.

E.ON Management Board member Bernhard Reutersberg said “We have commissioned two large offshore wind farms - Amrumbank West and Humber Gateway off the U.K. coast - in just one year and both were completed on time and on budget, which underscores our ability to expand renewables.” 

Amrumbank West offshore wind farm is wholly owned by E.ON.
