January 8 (Renewables Now) - MHI Vestas Offshore Wind will use the Danish port of Roenne at Bornholm as its base for the pre-assembly and shipment of turbine components for the 257-MW Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind farm in Germany.
The manufacturer will install 27 units of its V174-9.5 MW machine for the power plant at the beginning of June 2022, it said on Wednesday. The commissioning of the project, located off the coast of the island Rugen, in the North Sea, will take place between June 2022 and February 2023.
Once up and running, Parkwind NV’s wind farm will be able to generate enough electricity to meet the demand of 300,000 German homes. The Belgian offshore developer acquired the project from KNK GmbH in 2018.
MHI Vestas is a joint venture between Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) and Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (TYO:7011). Its selection of the port of Roenne is based on its proximity to Arcadis Ost 1’s site and the lifting capacity it offers, along with the convenient quay construction that fits the project’s needs, the company explained.
