German Agency Approves Proposed Kaikas Wind Farm in North Sea

Germany’s Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency approved the proposed Kaikas offshore wind farm with 83 wind turbines in the country’s North Sea.

The project will be built about 120 kilometers (75 miles) north of the island of Borkum at water depths of about 40 meters, the agency, known as BSH, said today in an e-mailed statement. Construction must start by Dec. 31, 2019, it said.

About 98 farms with 7,371 turbines are going through the approval process after about 30 were already granted, BSH said.
