Skyborn Renewables has taken a significant step forward in the Gennaker offshore wind project by signing an updated Master Supply Agreement with Siemens Gamesa. This agreement entails the delivery of 63 SG 14-236 DD wind turbines, each capable of generating up to 15 MW, and featuring a rotor diameter of 236 meters. This upgrade from the previous 2022 agreement, which planned for 103 SG 8.0-167 DD turbines with up to 9 MW power boost, marks a technological leap for the project.

"Securing this new Master Supply Agreement for the wind turbines is an important milestone for the Gennaker project, solidifying further planning – especially important in today's tight supply chain environment. It is also testament to the strong commitment of all parties involved in realizing the project," said Patrick Lammers, CEO of Skyborn. He emphasized the project's role in advancing renewable energy and contributing to climate goals in Germany and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

The Gennaker project, set to become the most powerful offshore wind farm in the German Baltic Sea with a capacity of 945 MW, is progressing well. The main soil investigation is nearly complete, a foundation design contract has been signed, and tenders for other components and installation vessels are under review. Offshore construction is scheduled to begin in 2027.

Located 15 kilometers north of the Fischland-Darß-Zingst peninsula, the Gennaker project sits within a designated priority zone for offshore wind energy. Skyborn secured the initial building permit in May 2019 and maintains exclusivity for development at the site.
