MHI Vestas Picks Port for Arcadis Ost 1 Turbine Pre-Assembly
MHI Vestas has selected the Port of Roenne in Denmark for pre-assembly and shipment of turbine components for the Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind project in Germany.
MHI Vestas will provide 27 V174-9.5MW turbines for the Arcadis Ost 1 wind farm located off the coast of the Rugen island.
The turbine installation is set to take place in early June 2022 by a new method based on using a floating installation vessel to assemble the turbine components, which will be located onboard the deck, as well as a dummy tower.
“Port of Roenne has been a solid choice because of its unique infrastructure, designed and constructed specifically to handle projects with extreme weights,” said Peter Toft Madsen, Head of Port Contracting & Support at MHI Vestas Offshore Wind.
“The harbour is located only 74 kilometers from the Arcadis Ost 1 project site, and the quay construction at the port has the ideal lifting capacity for our needs, meaning we can ship our components directly to the quay.”
The 257MW Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind farm is expected to be commissioned in 2023.
