Wind Power -- A New Course for Heligoland

Heligoland: An Island in Transformation

Offshore technology changing the face of a vacation paradise. Our series about a controversial development.

Heligoland is Germany’s only deep-sea island, located in the middle of the North Sea. Until now, islanders relied on income from tourism. But now the idyllic island is undergoing a revamp: to become the world’s "first offshore service island”. It’s meant to serve as a base for people involved in the construction and maintenance of wind parks just a few kilometers off the coast of Heligoland.
