Parkwind delivers first power from Baltic Sea offshore wind farm

Parkwind has produced first power from its 257MW Arcadis Ost 1 wind farm.

The Belgian developer stated that turbines at the offshore wind farm, which is located in German waters 30km north-east of the Baltic Sea island of Rügen, had been supplying power to the German grid since 12 January. 

Arcadis Ost 1 is capable of producing energy equivalent to powering up to 290,000 homes, Parkwind claimed. 

The wind farm uses 27 of Vestas’ V174-9.5MW turbines.

Arcadis Ost 1 was developed by Parkwind with partners PMV and OstseeWindEnergie GmbH, a project company made up of three German utility partners, Oberhessische Versorgungsbetriebe, Stadtwerke Bad Vilbel, and WV Energie. 

Foundation and the installation of the offshore substations at the site began in June last year, with turbine installation ending in November. 

The wind farm is due to begin operations this year, Parkwind added.
