Parkwind has handed out the contract for the detailed design of the OSS foundations and turbines for the Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind farm to the Hamburg branch office of the consulting group COWI.
The Arcadis Ost 1 wind farm has a capacity of about 247 MW and is located in the Baltic Sea, northeast of the island of Rügen, within the 12-nautical mile zone of the Federal State Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Germany.
The scope of the contract includes the geotechnical design, loads calculations, primary and secondary steel design, limit state verification, and all activities pertaining to the approval of the design.
“Wind energy is a strategically important growth area for COWI and we work with large-scale wind projects across the globe,” said Michael Sienko, COWI’s business development director for Offshore Wind. “The Arcadis Ost 1 project is without doubt amongst the most interesting offshore wind projects in the Baltic region for the time being, and we are very pleased to be onboard Parkwind’s team. With a growing office in Hamburg, I am confident that we can provide smooth and effective foundation designs in close cooperation with Parkwind.”
Arcadis Ost I project manager, Clément Helbig de Balzac added: “We are glad to have selected COWI as foundation designer for the Arcadis Ost I project, we are convinced they have the relevant experience and skills to deliver an efficient design within the agreed timeframe. This milestone is one of the several coming this fall and we are pleased in moving our project forward in line with our planning.”
