The Kaskasi offshore wind farm is a 342MW wind project located in the German North Sea.

Construction work will start in Q3 2021, with full project commissioning planned for 2022.

Once fully operational, Kaskasi will be able to supply the equivalent of 400,000 households a year with green energy.

Tekmar Energy will supply the windfarm with their patented TekLink CPS to protect the export cables as they transition from the seabed through the dynamic zone.
