Skyborn Germany


Skyborn Renewables offshore solutions GmbH is a wholly owned subsidiary of Skyborn Renewables (Skyborn). With more than 20 years’ experience and a track record of more than 7 GW built, approved or under procurement around the globe to date, Skyborn is one of the most successful offshore project developers in the world.

Andree Iffländer

Managing Director

Skyborn Renewables offshore is based in Hamburg, Bremen, Rostock and Leer, and was established in 2000 with the aim of developing, building and operating offshore wind power in Germany and contributing to the country's goal of greenhouse gas neutrality by 2045. Emissions have to be reduced by 65% by 2030 compared with 1990.

For achieving this ambitious target, the share of renewable energies in the electricity supply needs to almost double by 2030 and continue to increase thereafter. Offshore wind energy is a key element in achieving this goal. To this end, Germany's expansion paths and tender volumes are being massively increased. The expansion target for offshore wind energy will rise to at least 30 gigawatts (GW) by 2030. By 2035 at least 40 GW, and by 2045 at least 70 GW of installed capacity are to be achieved.


Skyborn Renewables offshore solutions is actively seeking opportunities to partner, acquire or finance other promising offshore wind projects with various industry players, ranging from local developers, energy distribution companies and transmission companies, and other stakeholders.


In Germany, we have already demonstrated our capabilities at five operational offshore wind farms which have been planned by our experts: Nordergründe (111 MW) , Butendiek (288 MW), Baltic 1 (50 MW), Baltic 2 (288 MW) and Hohe See (522 MW) . All five offshore wind farms have been built with the highest quality and safety standards. Moreover, we are currently preparing Gennaker project (927 MW) Germany.

Total capacity Germany

Completed and in development




Nordergründe was the first German offshore wind project in which all major components were supplied and installed by local manufacturers. The project provides renewable energy for around 110,000 households.


  • Capacity111 MW
  • WTG18 x Senvion 6.2M126
  • Location13 kilometres off the coast of Lower Saxony
  • StatusCommissioned in 2017


The Butendiek project is considered one of the most attractive offshore wind projects in the German North Sea due to its favourable site conditions with excellent wind resources, a favourable water depth of 20 m and ideal ground conditions. The project provides renewable energy for around 370,000 households.


  • Capacity288 MW
  • WTG80 x SWT-3.6-120
  • LocationApprox. 35 km off the west coast of northern Schleswig-Holstein
  • StatusCommissioned in 2015

Baltic 1

Baltic 1 is Germany's first commercial offshore wind farm and has been in operation since April 2011. The project supplies renewable energy for around 50,000 households. Skyborn developed and served as central procurement and construction manager and sold the project to EnBW post-permit.


  • Capacity50 MW
  • WTG21 x SWT 2.3-93
  • Location16 kilometres off the coast of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
  • StatusCommissioned in 2011

Baltic 2

Baltic 2 was developed by Skyborn until approval and was subsequently sold to EnBW. Baltic 2 is situated in the Baltic Sea and spans an area of 34 square kilometers. Each turbine has a capacity of 3.6 megawatts. With a total installed capacity of 288 megawatts, provides clean and renewable electricity to approximately 340,000 households.


  • Capacity288 MW
  • WTG80 Siemens SWT-3.6-120
  • LocationBaltic Sea, 32 km north of the island of Rügen
  • StatusCommissioned in 2015

Hohe See

Hohe See was developed by Skyborn until approval and was subsequently sold to EnBW. Hohe See consists of 71 wind turbines, each with an approximate height of around 150 meters and a rotor diameter of 154 meters. The wind farm has the capacity to generate around 2 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity annually, which is equivalent to the energy supply of 560,000 households.


  • Capacity522 MW
  • WTG71 Siemens SWT-7.35-154
  • LocationGerman North Sea, approx. 95 km north of the island of Borkum and approx. 100 km
  • StatusCommissioned in 2019


With a total capacity of 927 MW, Gennaker will be the most powerful offshore wind farm in the German Baltic Sea to date. The project will thus make an important contribution to accelerating the energy transition.


  • Capacity927 MW
  • WTG103 turbines from Siemens-Gamesa, each with up to 9 MW capacity
  • Locationapprox. 15 kilometers north of the peninsula Fischland-Darß-Zingst
  • Statusin development
