In the presence of Lower Saxony’s Minister for Environment and Energy, Olaf Lies, Parkwind and Steelwind have signed a contract for the fabrication of the monopile foundations for the Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind farm on July 3rd, at Steelwind HQ in Nordenham in Germany. This signature follows the recently announced OSS contract with Bladt and further secures Parkwind’s planning for the project. As one of the key market players in monopile fabrication, Steelwind will deliver 27 WTG and one OSS next generation XXL-Monopile units.

The monopile production starts 2021. Europe's leading producer of heavy plate Dillinger will supply the heavy steel plates for the monopiles.

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. In April 2018, Parkwind was successful in the offshore wind auction in Germany, launched by the Federal Grid Agency.

Steelwind Nordenham GmbH, a Dillinger Group company, has been manufacturing monopiles and transition pieces in Nordenham since 2015, and now also produces “single-piece” monopile foundations with unit weights of up to 2,400 metric tons. The single-piece monopile foundation replaces the previous design with a separate monopile and transition piece by integrating certain parts of the transition piece into the monopile. The monopile can then be up to 120 meters long. The steel for the foundations comes from Dillinger – the European heavy plate market leader located in Saarland.
