About Castle Wind
Castle Wind LLC is a joint venture between Trident Winds Inc. and EnBW North America Inc. Castle Wind’s mission is to bring a new, renewable energy source – offshore wind – to the California energy market by developing a commercial scale floating offshore wind farm off the coast of Morro Bay in Central California.
Joint Venture Partners
Castle Wind LLC was established by companies with decades of experience in the electric power industry, offshore wind projects development, operation and maintenance, and project financing.
Trident Winds Inc. was established in 2015 to utilize prior permitting expertise in the marine environment for the development of deep-water offshore wind projects using maturing floating offshore wind technologies. The Trident Wind team brings extensive experience in permitting, technology, utilities and energy markets to the Castle Wind LLC.
EnBW North America Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of EnBW AG, one of the largest energy supply companies in Germany and in Europe. With a workforce of over 20,000 employees, it supplies electricity, gas, water and energy-related products and services to 5.5 million customers.
EnBW AG is accelerating its expansion into renewable energy generation and in particular offshore wind power. With a combined 336 MW in operation in the Baltic Sea (Baltic 1 & 2), 610 MW under construction in the North Sea (Hohe See and Albatros), and an additional 900 MW under development (He Dreiht), EnBW is becoming one of the leading developers and operators of offshore wind farms.
Following its recent entry into Taiwan, EnBW AG has now expanded its activities to the United States of America by establishing a regional subsidiary, EnBW North America Inc., which is a partner in the Castle Wind LLC joint venture.
Castle Wind’s logo is a creative concept that combines the essence of our two joint venture partners. The castle symbolizes the castle of Hamburg, Germany, the location EnBW’s offshore wind headquarters. The trident, featured as the center tower on the Hamburg Castle is the logo of Trident Winds Inc. Together, we make up Castle Wind LLC.
