    RWE energy one of winning bidders in California offshore wind lease

    December 8, 2022 - dpa English


      Frankfurt (dpa) - Germany-based energy multinational RWE has said it was one of the winning bidders in securing the first US offshore wind lease sale on the Pacific coast.

      RWE bid $157.7 million to secure the Lease Area OCS-P 0561, which will be part of the first ever areas to produce floating wind capacity in the US.

      RWE was awarded a site 45 kilometres offshore in the Humboldt Bay off the north coast of California.

      The lease area has the potential to host up to 1.6 gigawatts of wind turbine capacity.

      The project is expected to be in operation by the mid-2030s.

      Sven Utermöhlen, CEO of Offshore Wind at RWE said: "Our success in California is a milestone achievement, RWE's first-ever awarded commercial scale floating offshore wind project."

      RWE noted that its US offshore wind development portfolio now totals about 4.6 gigawatts, including the New York Bight seabed lease area, which was awarded to them in February 2022.
