A power purchase agreement has assigned an additional 50MW of the He Dreiht offshore wind farm project in the German North Sea.
EnBW and Robert Bosch, a technology and services corporation with headquarters in Stuttgart, have signed a PPA for 50 MW of the 900 MW He Dreiht project.
The output equates to roughly 200 gigawatt-hours of power annually.
The PPA has a 15-year duration that begins in 2026.
The offshore wind farm owned by EnBW will start producing in 2025 after being constructed without assistance from the government.
He Dreiht is expected to be completed by the end of 2025 and will be located approximately 110 kilometres west of Helgoland and 90 km north-west of Borkum.
EnBW won the contract in 2017 via Germany’s first offshore procurement process with a zero-cent bid and is currently constructing the wind farm without assistance from the government.
Markus Quack, from EnBW’s trading unit, who helped to draw up the contract, said “PPAs can be drawn up on an individual basis and they enable companies to consistently implement their sustainability goals.”
“And for us, they are an important element in realising projects in the field of renewable energy.”
64 15MW turbines will be present at He Dreiht.
The final investment decision will be made by EnBW in the first quarter of 2023.
