Cuxhaven, Wien (euro adhoc) - Wind farm contractor Windkraft FiT GmbH has
received approval from Germany´s Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH)
to build the Albatros 1 offshore wind farm using surface foundations developed
by European construction group STRABAG. The Albatros 1 project is located in the
"Nördlich Austerngrund" wind energy priority area within the Exclusive Economic
Zone in the North Sea.

The first phase involves the installation of ten offshore wind energy converters
on top of gravity foundations as a low-noise foundation alternative. As part of
an extensive accompanying research package, the project includes a thorough
investigation of technical issues and environmental aspects by well-known
research institutions.

The foundations will be produced in Cuxhaven, where STRABAG is also planning to
build a production site for the serial production of gravity foundations. As a
next step towards project realisation, Windkraft FiT GmbH at the end of February
submitted all the necessary documents to TenneT, the electricity transmission
system operator responsible for the German North Sea, on schedule to receive the
unconditional grid connection offer.
