Denmark’s Port of Roenne to Host Baltic Power Wind Turbines

Denmark’s Port of Roenne has been selected as the installation port for the Baltic Power offshore wind project in the Polish Baltic Sea.

Baltic Power will be one of the first European offshore wind projects to use Vestas’ new 15 MW wind turbine which until now has only been installed as a prototype at the Østerild National test centre in Western Jutland, Denmark.

The 1.2 GW offshore wind farm will feature 76 Vestas V236-15.0 MW wind turbines. Out of a total of 76 units, 52 are planned to have towers with top sections manufactured by ArcelorMittal using low-emission steel.
