Since 2003, the BARD Group has stood at the forefront in developing new offshore energy resources. We take innovative action and combine highly sophisticated technologies with sustainable climate protection. BARD is a pioneer in the development and realisation of cutting-edge offshore wind energy deployment.
We are in the process of constructing „BARD Offshore 1“, located around 100 kilometres off the island coast of Borkum, the first commercial and currently most powerful class of offshore wind farm in Germany. Additional projects are planned for the future.
By 2013 „BARD Offshore 1“ will feature 80 turbines providing a nominal capacity of 400 megawatt – equivalent to the power needs of more than 400,000 households.
BARD 1 has received a grant from the European Commission as part of the European Energy Programme for Recovery (EEPR)
