Strabag sells Albatros and OWP West

Friday, 29 January, 2016 - 12:45

Strabag OW EVS, a joint venture of the Austrian company Strabag and the Norderland Group, has sold two of its projects. The offshore wind farm Albatros was acquired by EnBW. The OWP West project was purchased by Dong Energy.

Strabag OW EVS GmbH successfully carried out both the Albatros project as well as OWP West and obtained approval for them. In December of 2015, it then successfully sold both. The 400-MW project Albatros was acquired by EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG. Albatros has approval for 79 wind turbines in the 5 to 7 MW power range and is located 105 km off the German North Sea coast. The wind farm occupies an area of 39 km2 in water depths of approximately 40 m. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

The OWP West project, which has a capacity of 328 MW, was acquired by Dong Energy. For OWP West, the BSH approved 41 wind turbines with power ratings up to 8 MW. The project is located in Cluster 1 in the North Sea together with the Dong projects Borkum Riffgrund West 1 and 2. This makes Dong the owner of all approvals in the coastal Cluster 1, which should make project development more efficient.
