Germany's first offshore wind turbine, a N90/2500, was installed last month by Nordex AG 500 meters off the quay wall of the Rostock international port. The project was planned by WIND-projekt GmbH, Boergerende, and both companies worked closely with regional partners, who have been committed for many years to developing the economic structures required for future offshore business in Rostock in conjunction with municipal and state governments.

"The development of offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea provides a decisive basis for growth in the offshore industry. The reference projects will play a key role in international business and keep local companies ahead in terms of expertise." -- Dr. Otto Ebnet, state minister of economics
