Parkwind and Bladt have signed an agreement to design, build, and install the substation Arcadis Ost 1 in the German Baltic Sea.
The offshore wind farm, 19 km from Rugen Island, is scheduled to start construction works in 2022.
Bladt Industries is supplying Parkwind with the full substation, with Semco Maritime and ISC as the main partners. Semco Maritime will be responsible for designing and installing all of the electrical systems, while ISC Engineering will provide the structural design.
“In the context of a global crisis, this signature and the imminent start of the works at Bladt, demonstrate Parkwind’s unwavering commitment to successfully deliver the Arcadis Ost 1 project in line with the plan set more than a year ago. We are convinced that the team composed of Parkwind, Bladt and 50Hertz brings the expertise needed to deliver the transformation platform of the highest HSSE and quality standards. The shared substation will become the heart of Arcadis Ost 1 Offshore Windfarm, supplying the German grid with green energy for up to 300,000 households”Clément Helbig de Balzac, project manager Parkwind.
“We are exceptionally pleased once more to be selected by Parkwind. We have together succeeded to negotiate a contract, which we will execute together with Parkwind and our partners in the project team. We are looking into a complex project execution plan, but we have allocated an experienced project team to deliver according to the requirements. I am convinced that the strong partnership and trust between Parkwind and Bladt will be strengthened even further as we jointly embark the fourth project together.”Nils Overgaard, CSO Bladt Industries.
“This is another exciting project for Parkwind that we are very pleased to be able to contribute to in cooperation with Bladt and a strong and close-knit team of partners. We will leverage and build on our strong track record together and look forward to bringing our technology, experience and competences into play once again to support Parkwind’s ambition of creating a truly sustainable future.”Carsten Nielsen, senior VP, Semco Maritime.
