First shipment of wind turbines to Arcadis Ost 1 has been completed from the Port of Roenne

The establishment of the German wind turbine project, Arcadis Ost 1, has taken an important step, as the first three wind turbines have been shipped from the Port of Rønne. The first wind turbine has also just been installed at sea off the northern German island of Rügen.

Port of Roenne A/S serves as the installation and shipping port for the Arcadis Ost 1 project, a wind farm powered by Belgian Parkwind and with wind turbines produced by Danish Vestas. Arcadis Ost 1 has taken an important step in the establishment, as the first three wind turbines have been shipped from the Port of Roenne, and the first wind turbine has been installed at sea off the north German island of Rügen about 74 kilometers from Bornholm.

The Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind farm will be able to produce enough green energy to power up to 290,000 households. The wind turbines will be installed on monopiles, which were also shipped from the Port of Roenne earlier this year.

- The port and the project site in Rønne are buzzing with busy people from all over the world combined with the local heroes from Bornholm. Together, they are working closely to change the energy supply of the future to green emission-free renewable energy. I am pleased and proud that the shipment of the first mills to Arcadis Ost has gone well. It sends a signal that we as a port have once again fulfilled our primary task of delivering a strengthened infrastructure that can support the green transition, says Jeppe la Cour, Chief Business Officer for Offshore at Port of Roenne A/S.

The Arcadis Ost 1 project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2023, and in autumn 2023 the next offshore wind project will be launched, with the Port of Roenne serving as a shipping port. It will be the Iberdrola project Baltic Eagle, where 50 Vestas turbines will be established.
