NORTH SEA, 95KM NORTH OF BORKUM
As one of the first successful far offshore windfarms in Germany, Globaltech constructed their windfarm against by that time unheard off weather limitations. Stretching out far into the North Sea: Globaltech 1 is located 95 kilometers north of Borkum and 100 kilometers north-west of Helgoland and is connected to the Borwin Beta Converter station. With an area covering 41 km², the wind farm will generate ca. 1,5 billion kWh of electricity to supply an aggregate of around 445.000 households, saving around 1 million tons of Co2 emission annually. The 80th turbine delivered power to the grid in 2015.
