Iberdrola and Vestas in Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm deal


GermanyIberdrola and Vestas have agreed to supply 50 units of the V174-9.5 MW offshore wind turbine to the Baltic Eagle project, which is being developed off the coast of Rügen in German Baltic Sea.

A contract for service and maintenance of the new turbines has also been signed by both parties.

Baltic Sea’s largest wind complex

Baltic Eagle, which is 75 kilometres off the coast, will be connected to Lubmin substation by two new high-voltage cables installed by 50Hertz. It will form the Baltic Sea’s largest offshore wind complex, with a combined installed capacity of over 826 MW and a total investment of €2.5 billion. Baltic Sea Hub will operate as a center for offshore and onshore services, as well as providing local content for Iberdrola’s projects in Germany and the Baltic coastline countries, while also enhancing the company’s renewables.

The complex, which will be operated from the port of Mukran on the island of Rügen, will produce enough energy to meet 45% of the total electricity consumption of the state of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania and it will displace 1.65 million tons of CO2 emissions per year, thus contributing to Germany’s emission reduction targets.
