Germany's wpd offshore helps to promote the development of offshore wind energy in Romania

Last Updated on 08th January 2024

In the Romanian region of the Black Sea, Germany's wpd offshore announced it aims to create two wind energy projects with a combined capacity of 1.9 GW.


Separate project companies have already been formed for the planning and building of two wind farms off Romania's Black Sea coast: the 500MW Black Sea 1 and the 1.4GW Black Sea 2, according to wpd offshore. Wpd offshore became the first company to apply to Romanian authorities for the development of offshore wind energy projects in the Black Sea in July 2021, according to the company.


"wpd has its sights firmly set on the Romanian market for renewable energies and can build on a promising pipeline in the offshore wind sector," said Gabriela Dan Unterseh, head of project development Wind Offshore at wpd offshore in Romania.


The company stated that it is well equipped to take all necessary measures and processes to become Romania the first country in the Black Sea to develop offshore wind farms. It was also mentioned that in the future, this could provide an opportunity to export excess electricity to neighboring countries.


“We are convinced that by developing our offshore projects, we are making an important contribution to set Romania’s pioneering role in the expansion of renewables in the region,” said Achim Berge Olsen, wpd's offshore wind sector member of the management board. Since 2009, wpd has been operating in Romania. In addition to the two offshore projects, the business is developing wind onshore projects in the country with a total capacity of 1,300 MW.


Wpd, based in Bremen, constructs and operates onshore and offshore wind farms, as well as solar parks, in 28 countries across the world. It has completed wind energy projects with a total capacity of 5,150 MW and is planned projects with a total capacity of 12,300 MW onshore, 13,800 MW offshore, and 1,650 MWp solar energy.
