With 42 wind turbines and a capacity of 252 megawatts (MW), Gode Wind 2 will produce enough power to supply approximately 260,000 German households yearly.
Trine Borum Bojsen, Country Manager of DONG Energy and responsible for the offshore wind business in Germany, said:
"It is a huge milestone that we started producing power, and I am glad that with our wind farm Gode Wind 2 we can contribute considerably to the German energy transition."
The construction of the Gode Wind 2 project started with the first installation works at sea in April 2015. To utilize as many synergies as possible and thus saving costs, DONG Energy has constructed Gode Wind 2 together with the Gode Wind 1 offshore wind farm.
Gode Wind 1 and Gode Wind 2 have a total capacity of 582 MW. This is enough to supply power to approximately 600,000 households.
