World’s Largest Offshore Windproject in Danger of Delay

Delay until next year of the beginning of the realisation of the world’s largest offshore windturbine project near the German island of Borkum by the German ergy giant RWE. Problems arose in the realm of technology as well as the judicial framework, as it is unclear wenn the turbines could in fact deliver electricity into the grid and who will be responsible for the cost: the grid operator or the electricity producer. A similar RWE project near Helgoland is delayed for the same reasons, although this one is already underway. RWE is expecting losses in the hundreds of millions of euro’s. In total 160 turbines with a total capacity of 1000 MW are at stake.
