Masdar plans 10 gigawatts of offshore wind off Germany coast

September 28, 2022

Abu Dhabi-based Masdar has plans for the development of 10 GW of offshore wind capacity in the German parts of the North and Baltic Seas, and has just signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with German developer RWE to explore collaboration on offshore wind projects both in and outside Germany.

The company announced its 10 GW ambitions in Germany and the MoU with RWE after the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Germany signed an Energy Security and Industry Accelerator (ESIA) Agreement on 25 September with an aim to accelerate projects of joint interest in energy security, decarbonisation and climate action.

Through the bilateral agreement, the UAE and Germany will work together on the implementation of strategic lighthouse projects with a focus on renewable energy, hydrogen, and LNG.

As part of the agreement, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has entered into an LNG supply agreement with RWE, as well as a number of agreements with other German customers for demonstration cargos of low-carbon ammonia, a carrier fuel for hydrogen, the Emirates News Agency (WAM) reports.
