Iberdrola has been awarded the contract for two more offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea. The Spanish energy company already operates the "Winkinger" wind farm around 35 kilometers from Rügen. Another wind farm in the Baltic Sea will be built by KNK Wind GmbH. Energy Minister Christian Pegel (SPD) said on Friday, 27/04/2018, that the Baltic Sea as a location for offshore wind farms catch up a bit over the North Sea. In front of the island of Rügen, two wind farms are already in operation with "Baltic 2" and "Viking", the third with the name "Arkona" from Eon is under construction.
