Installation of first wind turbines at the Wikinger offshore wind farm is set to start as soon as weather conditions allow.

First wind turbine components have been loaded onto the jack-up vessel Brave Tern at the Port of Sassnitz-Mukran, and the vessel is now waiting for a weather window to sail out to the offshore construction site and to erect first Wikinger wind turbines, a spokesman from Iberdrola told Offshore WIND.

According to Mukran Port, Brave Tern berthed at the port on 5 January for the load-out of components.

In 2015, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier signed a contract to install 70 Adwen 5MW wind turbines at the offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea.

At the end of November 2016, final jacket foundations were sent off to the Wikinger site and first components of Adwen 5MW wind turbines arrived at the port.

The EUR 1.4 billion project is Iberdrola’s first offshore wind farm in German waters. The Wikinger wind farm is scheduled to be operational by the end of this year.
