Globaltech I

Global Tech I is one of the first offshore wind farms which has been built in the German North Sea. Comprised of 80 wind turbines – each with a capacity of 5 megawatts – the wind farm has an installed total capacity of 400 megawatts. This provides usable electricity generated from environmentally friendly wind energy amounting to more than 1.4 billion kilowatt hours per year. The roughly 41 square kilometre area of Global Tech I is located approximately 140 kilometres northwest of Emden in the German Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), outside marine protection areas. Germany’s Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) granted its approval for the 80 wind turbines and the associated transformer station as early as 2006. Simply calculated, Global Tech I is able to supply renewable energy for 445,000 households, each with an average power demand of 3,130 kilowatt-hours per year. The annual savings of CO2 amount to 1.2 million tonnes compared to traditional coal-fired power stations.
