In a signing ceremony in Copenhagen, MHI Vestas and Parkwind have signed a conditional agreement for the turbine supply for Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind project in the German Baltic Sea. The signing is the first conditional contract for MHI Vestas to feature the V174-9.5 MW turbine.

“We are exceptionally pleased to be chosen by Parkwind once again for such a milestone project,” said Henrik Jensen, chief sales officer at MHI Vestas.

He also said that this announcement is a testament to the strong partnership and trust between Parkwind and MHI Vestas as the two firms’ embark on their fifth project together. “We look forward to bringing our technology and experience to bear at Arcadis Ost 1 and contributing to the German renewable energy transition.”

As a result of the challenging soil conditions at the Arcadis Ost 1 site, Parkwind, MHI Vestas, and Heerema Marine Contractors have jointly developed a floating installation method – the result of a year-long collaborative process between the three partners. The innovative installation methodology promises to contribute to further cost reduction in the industry and unlock the potential of many offshore areas around the world with challenging soil conditions.

The project, scheduled for a late 2022 installation, is located 20 km northeast of the island of Rugen, and will supply enough green power for 300,000 German homes.

Recently, the turbine manufacturer had announced that its flagship V174-9.5 MW was selected as the preferred turbine for the Hibikinada Offshore Wind Farm. Hibikinada is the first awarded, commercial-scale project to be announced in Japan, the strongest signal to date that the Japanese offshore wind market is rapidly stirring to life. The 220 MW wind farm will be the first in the Asia Pacific to feature the firms’ V174-9.5 MW turbines. Once installed, the project will feature the most powerful wind turbines operating in Japan.
