Results of the 1.8 GW Germany offshore wind round have been published, bringing the total capacity awarded in 2023 up to 8.8 GW

The German Federal Agency has announced the results of the 1.8 GW tender for centrally pre-examined areas, for four sites located in the North Sea. The round was the first time sites were awarded using qualitative criteria, introduced last year using the updated WindSeeG act. The winners in the round are:

  • N-3.5: RWE – 420 MW (RWE with step-in rights)
  • N-3.6: RWE – 480 MW (RWE with step-in rights)
  • N-6.6: RWE – 630 MW (Vattenfall with step-in rights)
  • N-6.7: Waterkant Energy (Luxcara) – 270 MW (No developer with step-in rights)


Step-in rights give a developer the rights to a project area if they can match the winning bid. Vattenfall exercised its step-in rights to develop the 980 MW N-7.2 site last year, which was originally won by RWE. The awarded sites are expected to have commissioned projects in 2028.
