Germany – Off the coast of Germany, work on the first monopile of the Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm has completed.
The pile has a diameter of 9 meters and weighs 1,363 tons. It is the second wind farm built by Iberdrola in the German Baltic Sea, after Baltic Eagle.
Each of the 50 monopiles will be made at the EEW mega-factory in Rostock with diameters between 8.75 and 9 meters, lengths between 75 and 90 meters, and maximum foundation weight of 1,402 tonnes.
