The wind turbines will be installed in a water depth of 25 to 35 m.

In the first stage of the Trianel Wind Farm Borkum, have been already laid the essential foundations for the expansion of the municipal Offshore engagements. Therefore this project is of high commercial interest for local companies. Until the investment decision has been taken, further local partners shall be recruited.
