Germany’s Federal Network Agency opens tenders for three new offshore sites
The Federal Network Agency of Germany has released tenders for three new offshore wind farm construction sites.
Two of the sites are in the North Sea, while the other is in the Baltic Sea's German portion.
Bidders have until September 1 to apply their proposals, and those with the smallest funding criteria will be given precedence.
The three sites, according to the department, will have a total offshore wind capacity of up to 958 megawatts, with 658 megawatts in the North Sea and 300 megawatts in the Baltic Sea.
The wind farms that will be built must be operational by 2026. Germany is currently the third largest offshore wind nation in terms of size, accounting for about 22% of global offshore wind capacity, according to data from the Global Wind Energy Council.
