This week, the German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) announced that it has issued the planning approval decision for Ørsted's Gode Wind 3 offshore wind farm, located around 32 km from the island of Norderney.

Gode Wind 3
comprises two offshore wind projects which were originally awarded to Ørsted in the German transitional auctions in 2017 and 2018 under the names of Gode Wind 03 (110 MW at EUR 60 per MWh) and Gode Wind 04 (132 MW at a price of EUR 98.30 per MWh).

Due to the wind farms' close proximity, in September 2019, Ørsted announced that both projects will be built together under the name of
Gode Wind 3. An application was also made to the BSH to merge the respective planning approval procedures.

Ørsted submitted its consent documents in May 2020 and the BSH decided to issue the planning approval decision for
Gode Wind 3 on 26th March 2021.

The plan approval decision includes 23 SG 11.0-200 DD turbines with monopile foundations. The hub height of the wind turbines should be 125 m with a rotor diameter of 200 m and total tip height 225 m. Approx 30 km of 66 kV array cabling will connect the turbines to an offshore substation which will be located in Gode Wind 04 area with a monopile foundation.

The wind farm will connect to NOR-3-3/DolWin 6 (Kappa), due to be completed in 2023, and
Gode Wind 3 is expected to be fully commissioned in 2024.
