Permit for one project in German Baltic Sea

A second offshore wind project in the German exclusive economic zone of the Baltic Sea has gained a construction permit from the federal shipping office (BSH), which has also approved a meteorological monitoring platform at the site. But the 80 turbine Arkona Becken Südost project, 35 kilometres north-east of the island of Rügen, has yet to be granted cable permits. The site is within a region identified for development by the BSH late last year. E.ON Energie owns 98% of the development company, Arkona-Windpark-Entwicklung. BSH says a proposed 50 turbine project nearby, Ventotec-Ost 2, was taken into account in making its decision. The indication is that Ventotec-Ost 2 will also be approved. The Arkona Becken Südost project was initiated by a consortium of Arcadis Consult, GHF Gesellschaft für Handel und Finanz, Danish turbine manufacturer Vestas and Deutsche Bank. Permission for it to go ahead follows BSH's approval a year ago of the 80 turbine pilot phase of the Kriegers Flak wind station, also in the Baltic Sea. The Kriegers Flak developer, Offshore Ostsee Wind, is co-owned by wind developer and financing company WPD of Bremen and engineering company Wind-Projekt Ingenieur und Projektentwicklungsgesellschaft.
