Iberdrola has contracted German company Northern HeliCopter for six years to provide air transport at the 350MW Wikinger offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea.

The flights, which will involve Airbus H155 helicopters, will be on a ‘call-off’ basis to provide Ibderdrola with flexibility.

Wikinger is located approximately 75km off the German mainland and some 30km off Rügen island.

It will feature 70 Adwen 5MW turbines and is scheduled to be fully operational by the end of the year.
