The Port of Tallinn in Estonia will invest €53m to build a 310-metre-long quay to support the construction and maintenance of wind farms in the Baltic Sea. Of the €53m, €20m is co-financed by the European Commission.

The Paldiski South Harbour extension will allow the port to receive large offshore construction vessels and ship materials and turbine components.

The port also wants a 10ha hinterland beyond the quay for storage, logistics and military use.

It says talks are underway with European wind farm builders to plan work.

The quay and hinterland area are due to be completed in the summer of 2025, with wind farm construction to start in 2028.
