    Kaskasi offshore wind farm commences regular operation.

    March 29, 2023 - NS Energy


      On 24 Mar 2023, the RWE wind plant Kaskasi, situated almost 35 kilometres north of the island of Heligoland, officially started regular operation in the presence of the German Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action. With a deployed capacity of 342 megawatts (MW), Kaskasi can deliver the equivalent of above 400,000 homes with green power. The 38 wind turbines of Kaskasi were successively launched over four months. Since end-2022, all turbines have been injecting green power into the grid. After all needed tests were successfully finalized, the wind project is now starting regular operation. The approval procedure for the wind plant begun in spring-2019 and construction was greenlit by the German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (Bundesamt fuer Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie) at end-2020. The total offshore construction time was nine months while the investment costs for Kaskasi reached almost EUR 800 M. Over 100 people at RWE alone worked on executing this project - hand in hand with the workers from above 70 suppliers. After 295 MW Nordsee Ost and 302 MW Amrumbank West, Kaskasi is the third RWE wind plant that will be maintained and operated from the firm's service station on Heligoland. Roughly 100 service technicians, control room staff, and engineers guarantee smooth operation of the three wind units. RWE continues to drive forward the expansion of offshore wind power off the German coast. North of the island of Juist, the firm is developing the Nordseecluster in partnership with a Canadian ally. The four sites will include a total installed capacity of up to 1.6 gigawatts. The two projects (N-3.7 and N-3.8) of the first construction stage at 660 MW are now awaiting approval. The partners plan to take part in the German government's offshore wind auctions and to exercise their rights of entry for the two other areas (N-3.5 and N-3.6) this 2023.
