Vestas wins 41 MW order in southern Germany
The order includes supply and commissioning of the wind turbines along with a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution. The turbines will be installed in Baden-Württemberg in southern Germany. Wind turbine delivery and commissioning is expected to begin in the second half of 2017.
The project demonstrates the versatility of Vestas’ product portfolio and how it can be customised for any site. The project will employ a combination of V126-3.3 MW with a hub height of 137m and V126-3.45 MW with a hub height of 117m.
This site-specific customisation contributes to lowering the cost of energy and creating the best possible business case for EnBW. “This wind project is another result of our long-term relationship with Vestas and our confidence in their technology. The wind solution provides just the right business case for the project and speaks to our ambition of developing wind parks with the lowest possible cost of energy”, says Dirk Güsewell,Senior Vice President Generation/Portfolio Development of EnBW .
“By combining V126-3.3 MW with V126-3.45 MW turbines, both among our top performers for low-wind sites, for this project in southern Germany, EnBW highlights that Vestas’ technology offerings can be customised to any site and provide a strong business case”, says Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Central Europe. “This choice also reflects the strong sense of partnership that exists between our two companies, and we look forward to working with EnBW to help them achieve their goals and execute their strategy in the onshore wind area”.
