RWE to Start Supplying Power from Kaskasi Project in 2026


RWE has signed PPAs to supply seven German companies with power generated from its Kaskasi offshore wind farm: DHL Group, Ensinger, Evonik, Infraserv Höchst, thyssenkrupp Steel Europe, Vodafone and the retail divisions of the Schwarz Group. 

Most of the contracts run for ten years, says RWE, with the first contract set to start in 2026, when the project is expected to be operational, followed by the remaining nine in 2027 and 2028.

RWE’s 342 MW Kaskasi wind farm is located approximately 35 km off the coast of Heligoland and powered by 38 wind turbines. Three of the turbines have rotor blades that can be recycled at the end of their life. Other innovations include steel collars for some of the foundations based on a company patent and a concrete ring that expands in the seabed.

The wind farm Kaskasi is part of the Heligoland cluster, which also includes the Amrumbank and Nordsee Ost wind farms.
