The agreement involves 27 wind turbines for a German project with a capacity of 257MW.
The monopiles for the 27 Vestas wind turbines will be stored at the 257MW Arcadis Ost 1 in the Port of Roenne.
The wind turbines and components for the offshore wind farm in Rügen, Germany, will be delivered out of the Danish port in a few weeks.
Furthermore, DEME Offshore, EPCI’s foundations contractor, has opted to transport foundations for the wind turbines and transformer station to the Port of Roenne.
Parkwind Ost owns the Arcadis Ost 1 wind farm, which is anticipated to provide enough power for up to 300,000 German homes thanks to its 27 V174-9,5 MW turbines.
The project is projected to take a year to complete.
“We picked Port of Roenne as the port of shipping for our XXL monopiles since it was an easy decision,” DEME Offshore’s Arcadis Ost project director Mathieu Holvoet stated.
“It’s because of the port’s unique infrastructure, which is specifically intended to sustain huge project loads, and because it’s near to our Arcadis Ost 1 activities,” says the company.
“As a result, we are looking forward to working closely with the management and personnel of Port in Roenne A/S.”
“It indicates that our port is able to handle all elements of huge projects, including wind turbine export,” stated Jeppe la Cour, chief business officer of the Port of Roenne.
“I am looking forward to seeing the personnel of DEME Offshore when they arrive at the port.” I’m confident that the new project will produce jobs for local businesses on Bornholm, as we witnessed with the Kriegers Flak project last year.”
