Wind energy – Baltic Eagle
Iberdrola and the German port of Sassnitz have signed the lease agreement for the new operations and maintenance building that will serve the Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm.
The agreement delivers another important milestone in the offshore wind farm construction schedule.
During the event, Iris Stempfle, Managing Director of Iberdrola Renovables Deutschland, also announced that, on 1st September, the company will submit a bid for the construction of Windanker, a new offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea. The plan is to expand the Baltic Hub (currently, 350-MW Wikinger in operation since 2017 and 476-MW Baltic Eagle under construction) to more than 1 GW by 2026.
“As a global leader in the generation of wind energy, we are also taking responsibility for shaping the German energy transition in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. With today’s agreement and our participation in the auction for the construction of the Windanker offshore wind farm, we are committed to regional value creation and to our target of 1.1 GW by 2026,” highlighted Iris Stempfle.
