Parkwind announced that the first
Arcadis Ost 1 turbines have been energised, and are now producing energy. The project has bee delivering power to the German grid since 12 January 2023.

Foundation and offshore substation installation started in June, shortly followed by the laying of cables in August and turbine installation end of November. In full winter period, the floating turbine installation, cable termination and turbine commissioning kicked off. Together with 50 Hertz, Parkwind brought the turbine online over the past few weeks.

The Arcadis Ost 1 wind farm will have a capacity of 257 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. It is being developed by Parkwind with the participation of PMV and Ostsee WindEnergie GmbH, a project company of the three partners Oberhessische Versorgungsbetriebe AG, Stadtwerke Bad Vilbel and WV Energie AG. It is expected to be operational in 2023, and will be capable of generating enough green electricity for the annual power consumption of more than 290,000 homes.


Parkwind Ost’s Project Director Wim Verrept commented: “What better way to celebrate the New Year than with another huge milestone achieved by our Arcadis Ost teams? First power is the culmination of a long string of achievements each demonstrating the skills and efforts of a group of exceptionally talented people that I have the honor to work with. We are now delivering the first green energy produced by the Arcadis Ost windfarm to the German grid at the connection point in Lubmin contributing to a carbon free German society.”
