Tender Round: Deutsche Windguard Offshore Supports North Sea Two

Varel, Germany - The next bidding deadline for the expansion of offshore wind energy in Germany is September 2021. In the bidding process, bids for three pre-surveyed sites in the North Sea and Baltic Sea respectively (N-3.7, N-3.8, O-1.3) can be submitted until September 01, 2021.

Deutsche Windguard Offshore has been contracted by Nordsee Two GmbH to provide them with comprehensive support in preparing their bid for the N-3.8 offshore wind site with a capacity of 433 MW in the German North Sea.

Nordsee Two GmbH is the German subsidiary of Northland Power (85 percent) and RWE Renewables (15 percent). The company benefits from a "right of entry" as a compensatory measure for companies that held development rights in the respective areas prior to the introduction of the new centralized tendering model.

To back up Nordsee Two’s business case with the best possible cost and revenue estimates, Deutsche Windguard combined technical expertise from numerous disciplines to deliver farm layout optimization, in-depth site assessment and energy yield calculations. In addition, a conceptual foundation design was ellaborated as the basis for a tender.

"At Deutsche WindGuard, we have the entire expert knowledge in one place", says Niels Erdmann, Managing Director of Deutsche WindGuard Offshore and Head of Technical Due Diligence Projects, "thus, we were able to provide Nordsee Two with the exact tailor-made service required - and all from one single source."

In the bidding round to 01 September 2021, the offshore wind energy areas N-3.7 (225 MW), N-3.8 (433 MW) and O-1.3 (300 MW) with a total volume of 958 MW will be put out to tender. The maximum price for electricity from offshore wind turbines according to §22 WindSeeG in this round is 7.3 ct per kilowatt hour.
