Deme Offshore has been awarded an Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) contract for the foundations at Parkwind’s Arcadis Ost I offshore wind farm. The Arcadis Ost I wind farm is developed by the Belgian offshore wind company Parkwind and has a capacity of 257MW.
The wind farm will be located in the Baltic Sea, northeast of the island of Rügen in the coastal waters of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. Manufactured by Steelwind in Germany, the 28 monopile foundations will be about 100 metres long and weigh around 2000 tonnes each. One of the 28 foundations will support the offshore substation. The monopiles for the wind turbines will not be equipped with common transition pieces but will have a direct connection with the turbine tower. Deme Offshore will deploy the DP3 offshore installation vessel ‘Orion’ for this project. Production of the monopile foundations will start in 2021, while the installation campaign is planned to start before the summer 2022. Arcadis Ost I is scheduled to be fully commissioned in 2023.
