The Danish Port of Roenne A / S was selected as the installation port for the Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm in the German Baltic Sea.
Iberdrola and Vestas have signed a contract for the delivery of 50 units of the V174-9.5 MW offshore wind turbine for the Baltic Eagle project in German waters 40 kilometers west of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea.
All 50 turbines will be pre-assembled and installed by Port of Roenne A / S in 2024.
With a capacity of 476.25 MW and an area of â€‹â€‹40 km2, Baltic Eagle is Iberdrola’s second major German offshore initiative after the successful completion of the 350 MW Wikinger offshore wind farm in 2017.
Baltic Eagle is connected to the Lubmin substation via two newly constructed high-voltage cables.
Wikinger and Baltic Eagle, together with over 826 MW installed capacity and a total investment volume of around 2.5 billion euros, will be the largest offshore wind complex in the Baltic Sea.
The cluster will produce enough energy to cover 45 percent of the total electricity consumption of the German state Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and at the same time avoid the release of almost 1.65 million tons of CO2 per year.
The Baltic Eagle wind farm alone will prevent the release of around one million tons of CO2.
â€œIt is very positive that Iberdrola and Vestas have chosen the port of Roenne as the installation port for the Baltic Eagle project. This underlines the competitiveness of our services. At the same time, we are continuously implementing initiatives to improve the services for our customers on the market. “ called Thomas Bendtsen, CEO at Port of Roenne A / S.
