German companies plan world’s largest wind farm

Berlin, May 23 (Prensa Latina) The German companies BASF (chemical) and RWE (energy) informed that they are planning the construction of the world's largest wind farm, to be located in the North Sea.

The wind turbines, with a capacity of two gigawatts, are planned to supply BASF’s chemical plant in Ludwigshafen with green energy from 2030 on.

In addition, one-fifth of the electricity will be used to produce hydrogen without generating carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

The program will cost four billion euros and will be fundamental to the future viability of German industry.

BASF CEO Martin Brudermüller set out the initiative will demonstrate the sustainability of industrial production.

He explained that in order to make the giant wind farm true, additional tenders for offshore power plants are needed before 2030.

This involves an adjustment of the area and grid development plans and the exemption of green electricity from the surcharge under the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG).
