MHI Vestas has selected Port of Roenne at Bornholm for pre-assembly and shipment of the company’s offshore wind turbine components for Arcadis Ost 1, an offshore wind project scheduled for installation in Rugen by 2022.
In early June 2022, MHI Vestas will install 27 V174-9.5 MW offshore wind turbines for the offshore wind park, Arcadis Ost 1, located off the coast of the island Rugen in Germany. When the commissioning phase is complete during 2022-2023, the 257 MW project will be able to provide 300,000 German households with green energy.
“We have selected Port of Roenne A/S as the shipment harbour for our offshore wind activities concerning the installation of Arcadis Ost 1. Port of Roenne has been a solid choice because of its unique infrastructure, designed and constructed specifically to handle projects with extreme weights. 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,” says Peter Toft Madsen, Head of Port Contracting & Support at MHI Vestas Offshore Wind.
