Arcadis Ost 1 O&M Base Opens
The operations and maintenance (O&M) base for the 247 MW Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind farm has officially been opened at the Port of Sassnitz–Mukran, Germany.
Parkwind, the developer of the Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind farm, said that the office in Mukran will serve as the base for the project and as a central point for their future growth ambitions in Germany.
The building will see up to 40 professionals overseeing and maintaining the 257 MW project, located northeast of the island of Rügen in the German sector of the Baltic Sea.
Offshore construction at the project site in the Baltic Sea began in June 2022 with the installation of XXL monopile foundations and work on installing the wind turbines started in November of last year.
In April, Heerema Marine Contractors announced that it completed the first wind turbine installation campaign, which included 24 Vestas V174-9.5 MW units.
The Vestas V174-9.5 MW wind turbines are being installed using a novel floating installation method, called the Rotor Nacelle Assembly (RNA) method, developed by Heerema Marine Contractors.

The project is expected to be fully commissioned at the end of this year, after the three remaining Vestas wind turbines are in place.
