First Turbines Up at 476 MW Baltic Eagle Offshore Wind Farm

First Vestas V174-9.5 MW turbines have been installed by Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up vessel Blue Tern at the Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm in Germany.

According to the AIS data available online, the vessel Blue Tern is currently in the Port of Rønne, Denmark, for the next loadout of wind turbines which will be installed on monopiles.

Van Oord completed the installation of all Baltic Eagle foundations and the accompanying transition pieces (TPs) at the end of last year.

The TPs were installed in two campaigns with Van Oord utilising Spliethoff’s Brouwersgracht and Jumbo’s Fairplayer vessels to perform the work.

In 2021, Vestas finalised the wind turbine supply contract for Baltic Eagle with Iberdrola, one of the developers of the project.

That same year, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier signed a contract with the Danish turbine manufacturer for the transportation and installation of 50 9.5 MW wind turbines at the offshore wind farm, located in the German Baltic Sea, northeast of the Rügen island off the Pomeranian coast.

The 476 MW Baltic Eagle will be linked to the German high-voltage grid via the Ostwind 2 grid connection.

Scheduled to be commissioned by the end of 2024, the project will supply approximately 475,000 households with renewable energy while reducing CO2 emissions by approximately 800,000 tonnes per year.

Baltic Eagle is a joint venture between Abu Dhabi-based Masdar and Iberdrola.
