Baltic Eagle Swoops on MHI Vestas Giants
Iberdrola has selected MHI Vestas Offshore Wind as the preferred wind turbine supplier for the Baltic Eagle offshore wind project in the German Baltic Sea.
According to MHI Vestas, the contract includes the supply of up to 52 V174-9.5 MW turbines for the 476MW project, which will be the first offshore wind farm to feature this model.
“We are extremely proud to launch our V174-9.5 MW turbine with the Baltic Eagle project,” said MHI Vestas CEO, Philippe Kavafyan. “This will be a tremendous opportunity for MHI Vestas to deepen our experience in German waters and notably in the Baltic Sea. We look forward to confirming the order with Iberdrola and readying for installation.”
The announcement is the second preferred supplier agreement between Iberdrola and MHI Vestas since November last year, when the two companies signed a similar agreement for Vineyard Wind in the United States.
Iberdrola plans to have the Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm delivered and installed in 2022 and 2023.
