RWE Offshore Wind – Global player in offshore wind power

The demand for electricity from renewable energies is rising dramatically. RWE Offshore Wind fulfills this growing demand by planning, constructing, and operating offshore wind farms. Already the world’s second largest offshore company, RWE Offshore Wind GmbH plans to increase its capacity from the current 3 GW to 8 GW by 2030 (RWE’s share). As part of the “Growing Green” investment and growth strategy, RWE will be investing several billion euros in the expansion of offshore wind power. In connection with current projects in development as well as upcoming auctions in Europe, the United States, and the Asia-Pacific region, RWE Offshore Wind is preparing to implement several complex projects. Recently completed construction projects include the offshore wind farms at Triton Knoll and Kaskasi.

Taking a proactive role in the energy transition by using innovations and technologies effectively

RWE Offshore Wind tests a wide variety of new technologies in our offshore wind farms, enabling these plants to operate more efficiently and economically. In addition to the economic efficiency of our wind farms, their compatibility with the environment is the primary consideration. RWE Offshore Wind works exhaustively with its suppliers to reduce possible negative impacts on the environment. For this reason, we are testing the world’s first recyclable rotor blade at our Kaskasi offshore wind farm, off the coast of Heligoland. Other activities include research into the behaviour of marine life and birds


RWE Offshore Wind GmbH is a global energy company for sustainable power generation based on offshore wind. The portfolio of RWE Offshore Wind GmbH covers wind turbines that are installed on the seabed as well as modern floating wind turbines. In terms of the total capacity of offshore wind power, the company ranks second worldwide.
The energy sector transition is neither female nor male and concerns all of us. This is why we promote equality between men and women at all levels and are looking forward to meeting you!

Offshore wind is a pivotal element of our carbon neutral ambition. Already No.2 in the global market, we plan to triple our 2.2GWh output by 2030, led by projects such as Sofia (1,400 MWh) and Kaskasi (342MWh). With our financial stability, this is where you’ll also have the freedom to act with conviction and courage as we continuously improve, together.

Renewables is the future of our business, and Offshore wind a pivotal element of our carbon neutral ambition. With 800+ fixed bottom and floating turbines – plus others totalling 800MWh we operate for partners – we’re already the No.2 generator globally. And we plan to triple our 2.2GWh output by 2030, led by landmark projects such as Sofia (1,400 MWh) and Kaskasi (342MWh). Offshore wind is a constantly evolving technical, practical and social challenge. Our financial stability means you’ll have the freedom to act with conviction and courage as we pivot to harness new technologies – and continuously improve, together.
