Press Release:

Vestas receives 45 MW order and 20-year service contract for repowering project in Germany

Vestas’ highly advanced technology, short delivery times, and fast installation convinced us that they were the ideal partner for this repowering project”, says Knud-Erik Andersen, CEO of European Energy.

Manuel Lasse, Managing Director of Green Wind Energy adds that, “The V126-3.45 MW turbine in combination with the smooth project execution that Vestas is known for, is ideal for our repowering project in Prignitz. To us, one of the most important aspects of this project was to get the support of the local community, now and in the future, and working with Vestas definitely helped that along”.

“We’re very happy to add this latest agreement to our portfolio with our long-term customers, European Energy and Green Wind Energy. The turbines for the Prignitz wind project are another example of the increasing demand for our 3 MW platform in Germany. The platform repeatedly proves its versatility across a variety of German wind regimes, as our customers are benefitting from the five different rotor sizes, taller towers, and different power modes, thereby maximising annual energy production and optimising the levelised cost of energy”, says Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Central Europe.

Since the Vestas 3 MW-platform’s debut, more than 10 GW have been installed globally, both onshore and offshore.
