Parkwind Signs MHI Vestas Offshore Wind for Arcadis Ost 1 in Germany

Copenhagen, Denmark - The offshore windturbine manufactuerer MHI Vestas and Parkwind have signed a conditional agreement for turbine supply for the offshore windfarm Arcadis Ost 1 in the German Baltic Sea.

The signing is the first conditional contract for MHI Vestas to feature the V174-9.5 MW turbine. 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.

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. According to MHI Vestas, 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.

“We are exceptionally pleased to be chosen by Parkwind once again for such a milestone project,” said Henrik Jensen, MHI Vestas Chief Sales Officer. The announcement is a testament to the strong partnership and trust between Parkwind and MHI Vestas as we embark on our fifth project together, he adds.
