14 Apr 2022: The Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) published an expanded preliminary draft of the area development plan. Various changes to the layout and turbine density have been introduced, including maximising areas of 2 GW across Zones 3, 4 and 5. The FEP now identifies 46.7 GW across future tender areas. The FEP specifies which areas will be pre-examined before the tender and allocates the transmission systems. The BSH are proposing to re-route several connections to different border corridors and onshore connection points, as well as bringing commissioning dates forward. However, the TSOs argue that the changes could cause delays to projects which are already underway. Also the TSOs state that timescales for the necessary onshore grid upgrades are unrealistic, and because so many projects are scheduled for installation around 2029-2030 it puts considerable pressure on the supply chain. A further draft FEP is expected mid-2022.
