Parkwind has applied
for approval of changes to the original 2014 consents for the Arcadis
Ost 1 offshore
wind farm from the State offices for agriculture and environment for Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
Changes include the
use of 28 V174-9.5MW turbines as opposed to 58 Haliade 6MW turbines; deployment
of monopiles instead of jackets; a revised turbine layout; a reduction
in the length of array cables from 79km to 40km; and changes to substation
design including a monopile foundation as opposed to a jacket.
The application and
the associated documents, including the Environmental Impact Assessment
(EIA) report, are available for inspection until 19th February 2020.
19 km northeast of the island Rügen, the wind farm is scheduled to reach
financial close this year, with full operations from 2023.
