The last of the 71 wind turbines was installed Monday, with 27 of the 7 MW each turbines already generating electricity, it said.

Turbine installation focus is now switching to the neighboring Albatros project with its 16 turbines to follow over coming months.

Hohe See will be jointly operated with the 112-MW Albatros wind farm forming Germany's biggest offshore wind project to date -- on track for full commissioning later this year.

Canadian pipeline operator holds a 49.9% stake in the project.

In total, the 609 MW Hohe See/Albatros some 100 km (62 miles) northwest of Heligoland is expected to generate around 2.5 TWh a year.

This is equivalent to almost 500 million cu m of gas burn in a 48% efficient gas plant.

Grid connection has also been established with grid operator Tennet having commissioned its 900-MW BorWin3 converter platform, it said Monday.
