  • Strong winds and approximately 40m water depth provide ideal conditions
  • Power contract with feed-in-tariff subsidy for approximately 13 years under the German Renewable Energy Act
  • Robust project returns meet Northland's investment criteria
  • Two-contract construction strategy: MHI Vestas will supply and install the turbines. Van Oord, the balance of plant contractor will provide the turbine installation vessel and supply and install the wind turbine foundations and the offshore electrical infrastructure. MVOW will also maintain the turbines under a long-term service contract. DeBu will be connected to the 800 MW BorWin Beta off-shore converter station which has already been constructed.
