Parkwind and Steelwind ink Arcadis Ost 1 agreement

In: FoundationsSubstationsWindfarms
Parkwind and Steelwind have signed a contract for the fabrication of the monopile foundations for the Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind farm.

Steelwind's scope includes the delivery of 27 turbine foundations and one XXL-Monopile for the project's offshore substation. Monopile production is scheduled to start in 2021, with Dillinger to supply the heavy steel plates.

Arcadis Ost 1 Project Manager, Clément Helbig de Balzac from Parkwind, commented: “We believe the signature of this agreement sends a strong positive message during a difficult COVID-19 context. The impact generated by this contract fits into EU’s Green Deal initiative and demonstrates the offshore industry’s role in helping Germany reach its ambitious CO2 reduction targets as well as in stimulating the economy and local employment during a particularly difficult COVID-19 context. ”  

Dr.Ralf Hubo and Alexander Morber, managing directors of Steelwind, added: “These single-piece monopile foundations beyond XXL will be the biggest monopiles so far for German windfarms. The integration of some parts of the transition piece into the monopiles offers a new chance to reduce costs although the dimensions are really large. Our fabrication technology is very well adapted to these kind of monopiles and we are very proud that we have got this innovative order from Parkwind."    

Arcadis Ost 1 wind farm has a capacity of about 247 MW and is located in the Baltic Sea, 19 km north-east of the island of Rügen, within the 12 nautical mile zone of the Federal State Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Germany. In April 2018, Parkwind was successful in the offshore wind auction in Germany, launched by the Federal Grid Agency. Offshore installation works are expected to start works in 2022.

Steelwind's contract follows the recently announced offshore substation contract with Bladt and furthers Parkwind’s planning for the project.
