Iberdrola, Vestas Ink Baltic Eagle Turbine Agreement (Int'l.)
Iberdrola, Vestas
Date: 2021-06-04
Madrid-headquartered renewable energy major Iberdrola reports it has contracted with Vestas to supply 50 units of its V174-9.5 MW wind turbine -- including service and maintenance -- for Iberdrola's Baltic Eagle project which is being developed roughly 75 km off the island of Rugen, in the German Baltic Sea.

When fully operational, Baltic Eagle, Iberdrola's second major offshore initiative in Germany after the installation of 350-MW Wikinger wind farm in 2017, will generate sufficient energy to meet 45 pct of the total electricity consumption of the state of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania and it will displace 1.65 million tpy of CO2 emissions.

Iberdrola has 1.3 GW installed and is progressing with the construction of a further 2.6 GW and expects to have 12,000 MW offshore wind in operation by 2030. The Group operates the 389-MW West of Duddon Sands offshore wind farm in the Irish Sea (since 2014), 350-MW Wikinger in the German Baltic Sea (since 2017) and the 714-MW East Anglia One in British waters in the North Sea (since 2020). At different stages of planning and development are 496-MW Saint-Brieuc project, off the coast of Brittany in northern France, which will use 62 Siemens-Gamesa turbines each with 8-MW unit capacity; 800-MW Vineyard Wind, a joint venture with Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, off the coast of Massachusetts; and Baltic Eagle.

Vineyard Wind's 800-MW Offshore Project Progressing (Ind. Report)
Vineyard Wind, BOEM
Date: 2021-05-14
Vineyard Wind reports receipt of the U.S. DOI Bureau of Ocean Energy Management's (BOEM) Record of Decision (ROD) -- the federal review process for the 800-MW, 160,000-acre offshore wind project 15 miles off the coast of Martha's Vineyard.

The project, which will incorporate as many as 84 GE Haliade-X wind turbines, will be the first commercial scale offshore wind farm in the country, according to Vineyard Wind -- a joint venture between AVANGRID subsidiary Avangrid Renewables and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP).

In response to comments and direct engagement with neighboring communities, environmental organizations and advocates, fisheries organizations, as well as governmental and tribal entities, the project has committed to: invest millions of dollars to develop and deploy innovative technologies and undertake scientific research to further safeguard marine mammals; to provide millions to compensate fishermen for potential loss of revenue and gear, as well as to enhance their ability to fish in and around the lease area; and use an Aircraft Detection Lighting System (ALDS) to ensure nighttime lights will only operate a few hours a year when aircraft are present.

Vineyard Wind expects the project will reach financial close in the second half of this year and begin delivering energy to Massachusetts in 2023.
