Vestas to Power New Offshore Project in German North Sea with Giant Wind Turbines


Vestas, the Danish wind turbine manufacturer, has been selected as the preferred supplier for the new “Nordseecluster” offshore wind project in Germany, a joint venture between RWE and Northland Power. The project consists of four offshore wind sites in the German North Sea, north of the island of Juist, with a combined capacity of up to 1.6 GW.

Once a final investment decision is made, Vestas is expected supply 104 of its gigantic V236-15.0 MW offshore wind turbines, which will be serviced under a multi-year Operations and Maintenance service contract. The new Northsea windfarm will contribute significantly to adding clean electricity to the German grid and support the country’s ambitious energy targets.

The Nordseecluster will be constructed in two phases, with two wind farms already in the permit application phase. Turbine installation at sea is expected to start in 2026, with commercial operation in early 2027 (Nordseecluster A). The second phase (Nordseecluster B) will add a further 900 MW of capacity and is expected to be auctioned this year.

Vestas will be working with RWE and Northland Power on the project with the plan to achieve faster offshore expansion and simultaneously achieve climate targets while creating more energy independence. The expected order shows the V236-15.0 MW wind turbine’s competitiveness for projects scheduled in the second half of this decade is clear, and Vestas plans to further contribute to the renewable energy transition in Germany.

Vestas has been a leader in wind energy for over 40 years, and their innovative wind turbine solutions and reliable service helps many countries and companies to achieve their renewable energy goals.
