Iberdrola has completed the planning approval process for the Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm and received a positive decision from the German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH).
Upon completion, Baltic Eagle will have an installed capacity of 476 MW. Iberdrola is currently beginning the exploration of explosive ordnance on the seabed. Once the construction phase begins, all central components will be installed on site in 2023, in an intensive campaign, with commissioning scheduled for 2024.
Located 30 kilometres northeast of the island of Rügen, off the coast of Pomerania, Baltic Eagle is part of a large offshore wind complex in the Baltic Sea, with a total installed capacity of more than 1,100 MW and a combined investment of € 3.5 billion. This hub also includes the Wikinger (350 MW) offshore wind farm, commissioned at the end of 2017, and Windanker (300 MW), which will start operating in 2026.
