Port of Tallinn and Utilitas Wind to cooperate on the development of offshore wind farms

Port of Tallinn and Utilitas Wind have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the aim of accelerating the development of offshore wind energy in Estonia and the Baltic States. Cooperation in the development, construction and maintenance of offshore wind farms will enable new business opportunities while developing local expertise.

According to Valdo Kalm, the CEO of the Port of Tallinn, cooperation with Utilitas signifies the port’s growing role in the development of renewable energy in the Baltic Sea region. “Port of Tallinn has set an objective to become the leading offshore wind farm operator in the Baltic and Northern European region. To this end, we have decided to invest up to EUR 53 million to build a new quay in Paldiski South Harbour,” said Kalm.

Rene Tammist, board member of Utilitas Wind, believes that cooperation with the Port of Tallinn will create better opportunities for the faster construction of offshore wind farms. “Cooperation between strategically important sectors is of key importance to ensure that new generation capacities are built as soon as possible, bringing down the price of electricity and ensuring our energy independence through domestic production. Offshore wind farms are the best possible solution to achieve this goal,” said Tammist.

Due to the favorable location of Paldiski South Harbour, the construction of the new 310-metre quay with a 10-hectare backland area will create preconditions for Port of Tallinn to become an important partner in the construction and subsequent maintenance of offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea region. The new quay will ensure the capacity of the port to receive offshore construction and supply vessels for the construction of offshore wind farms and the transport of wind turbine components. The large rear area beyond the quay allows various preparations for the manufacture and storage of generators and wind turbine blades before being loaded on a ship.
