Skyborn Renewables Upgrades Turbine Selection for 945MW Gennaker Offshore Wind Project

has opted to advance its turbine technology for the 945MW wind project, switching from original 9MW models to 's state-of-the-art 15MW turbines. The decision follows the signing of an updated Master Supply Agreement with Siemens Gamesa, which entails the delivery of 63 SG 14-236 DD units, known for their enhanced power output and larger rotor diameter of 236 meters.

Patrick Lammers, CEO of Skyborn Renewables, underscored the significance of this development, stating, “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.” He added, “It is also testament to the strong commitment of all parties involved in realizing the project.”

The Gennaker project, located approximately 15km north of Germany's Fischland-Darß-Zingst peninsula in the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania coastal sea, plays a pivotal role in advancing regional and national climate goals. Skyborn secured the initial building permit in May 2019 and maintains exclusive development rights for the site.

Currently, Gennaker progresses with significant milestones including advanced soil investigations, finalized foundation design contracts, and ongoing evaluations of tenders for key wind farm components and installation vessels. Offshore construction is slated to commence in 2027.

Lammers emphasized the critical role of offshore wind power in enhancing integration, affirming that “The Gennaker project will directly contribute to Germany's and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania's climate goals.”
