On September 9, 2021, the Bundesnetzagentur has announced the results of the first offshore wind tender for pre-investigated sites under the so called “central model”.
EDF Renewables is very pleased to have received the award for the 433 MW site N‑3.8 in the German North Sea after having submitted a zero bid on September 1, 2021. Since a competitor holds a step-in right for this site, the award will not be final until the beginning of November 2021.
EDF Renewables is a leading company in the renewable energy sector worldwide. The company develops, builds and operates renewable energy power plants in more than 20 countries – with a strong focus on onshore wind, offshore wind and solar energy.
