The energy company purchased the project in 2008 and began the construction works 16 km to the north of the Darß-Zingst peninsula in the spring of 2010. Baltic 1 comprises 21 Siemens turbines with a capacity of 2.3 MW each. It will supply electric power for about 50,000 households. The electricity is conducted to the coast via a 60 km marine cable and subsequently via a ground cable to the transformer substation Bentwisch. "We have carried out real pioneering work here and have learnt a lot", emphasized Boris Schucht, the CEO of the company 50Hertz Transmission GmbH, which was in charge of grid connection. "We will be able to use the experience we have gained through this project in our next, six times larger project EnBW Baltic 2", announced Hans Peter Villis, Chairman of the EnBW Management Board.
