DEME Offshore has been awarded an EPCI contract for the foundations of Parkwind’s Arcadis Ost I offshore wind farm.

The wind farm will have a capacity of 257 MW and will be located in the Baltic Sea, northeast of the island of Rügen, Germany. It will feature 28 monopile foundations manufactured by Steelwind that measure 100 m long and weigh approximately 2,000 tonnes each.

DEME Offshore will deploy the DP3 offshore installation vessel Orion for the project. It will be equipped with a tailor-made, motion-compensated gripper system able to handle foundations of up to 2,500 tonnes.

Production of the monopile foundations will start in 2021, while the installation campaign is planned to start before the summer of 2022. Arcadis Ost I is scheduled to be fully commissioned in 2023.
