PNE's Gode II Offshore Wind Farm Approved

Wind-farm developer PNE Wind AG has received the approval for the Gode Wind II offshore wind-farm from Germany's Federal Agency for Marine Shipping and Hydrography (BSH).

Gode Wind II will be located directly adjacent to the Gode Wind I offshore wind-farm project which has already been approved by BSH. Thanks to the approvals that have been recieved, the two projects combined will see 160 offshore wind turbines installed nominal capacity of up to 800 MW. The build-out for the Gode Wind II offshore wind-farm is planned for 2011-2012, PNE said.

In May 2007, the application for approval of the project was presented to the Federal Agency for Marine Shipping and Hydrography (BSH). At the same time, the necessary studies on the ecology, the building foundation and on the safety of shipping in the area of the project were carried out. The results were presented to the approval authority in November 2008.
