Respect Energy proposes 820 MW floating wind farm in Estonia

Respect Energy Capital Group has revealed its plans to construct an 820 MW offshore floating wind farm off the coast of Estonia. The complex is expected to be situated in the Wind Energy Innovation Area in the Baltic Sea and begin operations in 2032. Its yearly production is projected to be approximately 3.75 TWh.

Furthermore, Respect Energy will collaborate with Polish offshore project developer BaltiConnect on the initiative, which also includes the construction of a prototype station to produce green hydrogen and ammonia. In order to establish a local supply chain, Respect Energy Holding has already negotiated agreements for collaboration and obtained basic connection criteria with Estonian entities.

Additionally, a cooperation agreement with the Port of Tallinn permits the use of port infrastructure facilities for wind farm operations and installation procedures. Reportedly, the installation of the wind turbines and other equipment needed for the production of green hydrogen and ammonia will be handled by the Estonian shipbuilding contractor LTH-Baas.

In February 2023, Nordex Group received a turbine order from Enefit Green for a 255 MW onshore wind cluster in Estonia. As part of the agreement, Nordex had to provide 38 of its N163/6.X wind turbines to the Tootsi, Sopi I, and Sopi II wind farms.
