The Port of Rønne's big expansion has resulted in yet another project. Instead of alternative ports such as Rostock or Stetten, MHI Vestas has selected Bornhom's harbor for preassembly and shipping of wind turbines for the Arcadis Ost project in the German part of the Baltic Sea, the offshore wind OEM informs in a statement.

"Port of Rønne has been a solid choice because of its unique infrastructure, designed and constructed specifically to handle projects with extreme weights. The harbor is located only 74 kilometers from the Arcadis Ost 1 project site, and the quay construction at the port has the ideal lifting capacity for our needs, meaning we can ship our components directly to the quay," writes Peter Toft Madsen, head of Port Contracting & Support at MHI Vestas Offshore Wind.
