Westküste wind farm

Westküste wind farm

The wind farm Westküste is Germany’s first wind farm. In August 1987, 30 wind turbines, with a total output of 1,000 kilowatts, were commissioned. The architects of the wind farm were able to tap into the experience and infrastructure of Growian, a large wind turbine at Kaiser-Wilhelm-Koog, and draw on some essential expertise for connecting wind turbines to a regional power network, material performance and wind farm design. As part of the Windenergiepark Westküste GmbH, today, the accumulated know-how serves the interest of the entire sector.

After the third repowering in – of 38 wind turbines in total – there are now four turbines with a total capacity of 7,400 kilowatts at the Westküste wind farm in Kaiser-Wilhelm-Koog. Vattenfall has a share of 20 %.
