Iberdrola is a leading global energy company, number one in wind power generation and one of the world's largest electric utilities by market capitalization. The company supplies energy to nearly 100 million people in dozens of countries.
Iberdrola Renovables Deutschland GmbH is currently building its second offshore wind farm off the Baltic Sea island of Rügen. After its commissioning in 2024, Baltic Eagle (476 MW), together with Wikinger wind farm (350 MW), opened in 2018, will form the so-called "Baltic Hub". It will be expanded by the Windanker offshore wind project (300 MW), which is currently in the planning stage and is scheduled for completion by 2026. Iberdrola's "Baltic Hub" will then have a total capacity of 1.1 GW and produce green electricity for the German energy transition.
Already the two offshore wind farms Wikinger and Baltic Eagle avoid about one million tons of CO2 annually and thus contribute to the achievement of the German climate targets. In total, the "Baltic Hub" will have an installed capacity of more than 1.1 GW by 2026, triggering total investments of around 3.5 billion euros. This can cover approximately the entire energy requirements of all private households in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
