News release from Vestas Northern and Central Europe
Hamburg, 30 September 2020
Vestas has secured a 54 MW order for the GreenLab Skive project from Eurowind Energy A/S, a leading developer and operator of sustainable energy projects. The GreenLab project, located in Mid Jutland, Denmark is a sustainable energy park and research facility that generates renewable energy from multiple sources such as wind, solar and biogas.
To maximise the project’s power production, Vestas has developed a site-specific wind energy solution that features one V126-3.45 MW turbine delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode and 12 V136-4.2 MW turbines, combined with towers on different hub heights and a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
The order underlines the strong partnership between Vestas and Eurowind Energy A/S as well as Vestas’ leading position in the Danish wind energy market, where the company today has installed more than 3.7 GW of wind turbines.
“We are happy to execute this landmark project in Denmark together with Vestas and thus strengthening our cooperation with Vestas even further. This hybrid project - with wind, solar and storage battery - will supply green power directly to a 12 MW hydrogen/E-methanol production facility making the green transition really happening through sector coupling”, says Jens Rasmussen, CEO of Eurowind Energy A/S.
“We are proud to deliver our technology to a lighthouse project like GreenLab, which works to transform the way green energy is produced, converted, stored and put to use. GreenLab truly marks a significant step in making the energy transition come true”, says Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe.
"At the same time, we look forward to implementing yet another wind project with Eurowind Energy A/S and utilising the flexible 4 MW platform technology for the benefit of our valued customer”.The contract further includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and thus optimising the energy output.
Deliveries and commissioning are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2022.
