Iberdrola Completes Installation Of Wind Turbines At 350 Megawatt Wikinger Offshore Wind Farm

Spanish utility Iberdrola has this week completed the installation of 70 wind turbines at the 350 megawatt Wikinger offshore wind farm in the German area of the Baltic Sea. 

Spanish utility Iberdrola has this week completed the installation of 70 wind turbines at the 350 megawatt Wikinger offshore wind farm in the German area of the Baltic Sea.

The Wikinger offshore wind farm is a flagship offshore wind project for Iberdrola, which committed €1.4 billion to the 350 megawatt (MW) projected located off the northeastern coast of the German island of Rügen. Iberdrola, working alongside turbine manufacturer Adwen and subcontractor Fred. Olsen Windcarrier, completed installation of all 70 AD 5-135 wind turbines, which will generate enough electricity to supply approximately 350,000 German households, representing 20% of the energy demand in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, and avoiding 600,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

The first wind turbine installation was completed in February of this year, with construction being conducted by Fred Olsen’s vessel Brave Tern (see below) one of two self-elevating, self-propelled jack-up vessels dedicated to installing offshore wind turbines.

“I am very proud of our team for their hard work on this project,” said Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s project manager Alexandra Koefoed. “We have worked closely with our client Adwen and park operator Iberdrola to safely and efficiently complete installation. Our experience working on the Adwen 5MW turbines on Global Tech I was invaluable.”
