At the same time, the tendering process for the other main components and installation vessels is ongoing, the developer said.

“In the coming weeks and months, the grid connection will be tackled, and we can count on the good cooperation with the responsible grid operator 50 Hertz. Thanks to the constant support of the state government in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, we are confident that we will also be able to master the challenges that still lie ahead of us in the future”, said Andree Iffländer, project manager at WPD.
