EnBW is one of the largest energy companies in Europe with 23,000 employees, and supplies electricity, gas, water, and services to around 5.5 million customers.
EnBW is active both on- and offshore along the entire value chain from development, acquisition, construction, operation, and direct marketing to wind turbine repowering. We rely on partnerships and also make our know-how available to third parties as a service provider.
We are one of the pioneers in offshore wind energy. EnBW Baltic 1 wind farm, Germany's first commercial offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea, was followed by EnBW Baltic 2, which means we have installed turbines with a combined rated output of 337 MW in the Baltic Sea. We are currently continuing our growth course in the North Sea and have connected a further 610 MW to the grid in 2019/2020 with the EnBW Hohe See and EnBW Albatross wind farms. Construction of our third North Sea project, EnBW He Dreiht, is scheduled to start in 2023. We are also dedicated to technology development: the Nezzy2 research project, for example, involves floating wind turbine trials.
EnBW has currently expanded its onshore portfolio throughout Germany to a rated output of over 500 MW. We intend to forge ahead with this expansion over the next few years to build up a portfolio of 2500 MW of rated output by 2025. We are also targeting existing wind farms that are approaching the end of their service lives. Continued operations, repowering, or sale? As an experienced wind farm developer and operator, EnBW is available as a service provider with the long-standing know-how of an energy supplier to help with this major decision.
EnBW is continuing to grow both offshore and onshore. We focus on the core German market, but also on selected foreign markets. For example, we are active in the onshore segment through national affiliates based in France and Sweden. For instance, we have already developed a portfolio of around 100 MW rated output in Sweden through the purchase of project rights and existing project-ready parks. We are also represented via subsidiaries in the US-American and Taiwanese offshore markets.
