The first batch of wind turbine components for Estonia’s Sopi-Tootsi wind farm have arrived at the port of Tallinn’s Paldiski South Harbor.

The wind farm is being developed by Enefit Green and will feature 38 wind turbines. Their components are being transported from Asia to the port of Tallin across several shipments.

The first cargoes – turbine tower components, nacelles and blades – arrived at the port onboard a Chipolbrok multipurpose vessel, with more shipments are expected in the coming weeks.

According to the port, turbine parts will become more frequent at Paldiski; the primary purpose of its newly constructed quay 6a will be to accommodate wind energy-related shipments, as well as military transport. The 310 m-long quay and 10-ha hinterland area will be dedicated to servicing wind farms and is slated for completion by the end of 2025.

The port is also looking for cooperation partners to develop the vacant areas in Muuga Harbour. More than 7.6 ha of land is on offer in the eastern part of the harbour, with the port hoping to develop a multifunctional loading, handling and storage complex for environmentally friendly fuels and/or other production and logistics activities.

Interested parties have until May 31, 2024, to submit their development idea.
