Masdar and RWE are shareholders in the London Array project, which has been operational since 2012.

Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar) and Germany’s RWE Renewables have signed a memorandum of understanding to explore collaboration on offshore wind projects in several key markets, according to WAM, the UAE state-owned news agency.

Masdar and RWE are shareholders in the London Array project, which has been operational since 2012. The wind farm has an operating capacity of 630 MW, powering over half a million homes, while displacing almost 1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually.

Masdar is increasingly targeting offshore wind projects to reach 100 GW total capacity by 2030.

The Abu Dhabi-based utility’s existing offshore projects are  Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm, UK, and Hywind Scotland, the world’s first floating offshore wind farm, which became operational in October 2017.

With an extensive investment and growth programme of €50 billion ($48.18 billion), RWE will expand its green portfolio to 50 GW by 2030, including offshore and onshore wind, solar and battery storage.
