277 new offshore wind turbines, totalling 1,045 megawatts (MW), were fully grid connected in Europe during the first six months of 2013. This is double compared to the same period in 2012 when 523.2 MW were installed. In addition, 268 foundations were installed and 254 turbines erected, all during the first 181 days of the year.

European Offshore Wind Industry - Key Trends and Statistics, first half 2013 - EWEA

  1. 1. The European Offshore Wind Industry - key trends and statistics 1st half 2013
  2. 2. Mid-Year European offshore wind energy statistics • 277 wind turbines were fully grid connected, totalling 1,045 MW (up 522 MW or double installations during the same period last year) in seven wind farms: Thornton Bank (BE), Gunfleet Sands 3 (UK), Lincs (UK), London Array (UK), Teesside (UK), Anholt (DK), BARD offshore 1 (DE). A further 130 turbines, totalling 484 MW, are installed but awaiting grid connection.
  3. 3. Mid-Year European offshore wind energy statistics (…continued) • 268 foundations (2 units less than during the same period last year) were installed in 10 wind farms: NorthWind (BE), Gwynt y Môr (UK), West Of Duddon Sands (UK), BARD offshore 1 (DE), Dan Tysk (DE), MeerWind (DE), Nordsee Ost (DE), Global Tech 1 (DE), Trianel (DE), Arinaga Quay (ES).
  4. 4. Mid-Year European offshore wind energy statistics (…continued) • 254 turbines (43 units or 20% more than during the same period last year) were erected in 10 wind farms: Thornton Bank (BE), Gunfleet Sands 3 (UK), Lincs (UK), Gwynt y Môr (UK), Teesside (UK), Anholt (DK), Bard (DE), Riffgat (DE), Kårehamn (SE), Arinaga Quay (ES). • Preparatory work has begun in three further wind farms, two in German waters and one in the UK: Amrumbank West (DE), Baltic 2 (DE), Methil (UK).
