Last week the largest offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea has been officially inaugurated. Meanwhile, DNV GL has announced that it awarded the Arkona Offshore Wind Farm with the project certificate which confirms all relevant safety features of the wind farm and validates the technical and quality compliance with the BSH standard requirements, to ensure a safe and reliable power supply.

The certification was carried out according to the German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH – Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie) standard BSH7005 and covers all stages of the project development from design planning over construction to commissioning.

Located in the Baltic sea, the Arkona project is 35 kilometres northeast of the German island of Rügen. The wind farm has capacity of 385 megawatts, enough to supply around 400,000 households with renewable energy, with 60 installed 6MW turbines produced by Siemens Gamesa.

Holger Matthiesen, Project Director Arkona for E.ON and Equinor commented: “Thanks to the great cooperation between our team of offshore experts and DNV GL’s goal-oriented and pragmatic certification approach, we managed to realise our ambitious objectives concerning our project certification timeline, which set a new standard in the offshore wind industry.”

During the certification process DNV GL worked in close partnership with the Arkona project team to ensure the ambitious timeline for the commissioning of the wind farm were met.

Kim Mørk Executive Vice President Renewables Certification at DNV GL said: “The experience of working with E.ON’s/Equinor’s team in previous projects has been vital to the success of the timely delivery of the project certification of the Arkona offshore wind farm. Ensuring that renewable projects deliver safe and reliable energy is critical to further accelerate the energy transition and we are very pleased that our partnership with the Arkona project is making a valuable contribution to reaching that goal.”
