NOTE: This story first appeared in our subscriber-exclusive offshore update newsletter earlier this week.

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.

Located approximately 19 km northeast of the island Rügen, the wind farm is scheduled to reach financial close this year, with full operations from 2023.
