Germany to Expand Offshore Wind-Power Capacity Fourfold in 2014

Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Germany will expand its offshore wind-power capacity fourfold this year as projects totaling 1.5 gigawatts are expected to begin generating, according to Stiftung Offshore-Windenergie, an industry group.

Six farms including the 400-megawatt Global Tech I project and EnBW Energie Baden-Wuerttemberg AG’s 288-megawatt Baltic 2 plant are seen starting up in 2014, the group said today in a study commissioned by the Environment Ministry. Two more are being built and expected to operate from next year, it said.

Three farms with a combined capacity of 520 megawatts are in operation in the German North and Baltic Sea, the group said. Construction of at least three more projects with 800 megawatts will start in the course of this and next year, it said.
