Iberdrola Links Wikinger to German Grid

Iberdrola has connected its 350MW Wikinger offshore wind farm to the German power grid. 

Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up Brave Tern installed the 70th and final Adwen 5MW turbine at the site in the Baltic Sea in October 2017.

The EUR 1.4 billion wind farm, located off the north-eastern coast of the island of Rügen, will supply renewable energy to 350,000 homes, representing more than 20% of the power used by the state of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, in whose waters the project is located.

The wind farm will be operated from an O&M base in Sassnitz, for a period of at least 25 years.
