About our customer
Global Tech I is one of the first offshore wind farms being built in the German North Sea. The wind farm’s array consists of 80 wind turbines each with a capacity of 5 megawatts and so has a total installed capacity of 400 megawatts. This will realistically provide electricity generated by environmentally friendly wind energy of more than 1.4 billion kilowatt hours per year.
Global Tech I will occupy an area of roughly 41 square kilometres located approximately 180 kilometres from Bremerhaven and 138 kilometres northwest of Emden. The wind farm is being built in the German Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and not within any marine protection zone. Germany’s Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) granted its approval for the 80 wind power turbines and the associated transformer station in 2006. Construction of Global Tech I started in August 2012 and upon completion it will deliver electricity for an equivalent of 445,000 households with an average consumption of 3,130 kilowatt hours annually.
