June 12 (Bloomberg) -- Germany’s Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency approved Wpd AG’s proposed Kaikas offshore wind farm with 83 wind turbines in the country’s North Sea.

Wpd will continue to develop the 580-megawatt project and seeks to start construction in 2017, Christian Schnibbe, a spokesman for the developer, said today by e-mail.

The farm 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.
