Vestas wins EnVentus repowering order in Germany
News release from Northern & Central Europe
Hamburg, 30 December 2021
Vestas has secured a 42 MW order from Repowering Wöhrden Poolgesellschaft GmbH & Co KG and Windkraft Looft Persenweg GmbH & Co. KG, for the Wöhrden repowering project in Schleswig Holstein, Germany.
Vestas will supply, install and service seven V162-6.0 MW turbines, replacing the 25 legacy turbines currently powering the site, which will increase the energy output and extend the lifetime of the project site with Vestas’ best-in-class EnVentus platform while reducing the number of turbines on site.
The repowering project will be serviced by Vestas under a long-term 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement, providing power performance certainty and Vestas’ industry-leading service expertise throughout the lifetime of the project.
“The repowering of the Wöhrden project is an excellent example of repowering projects driving the clean energy transition. By moving towards more advanced technology the new project will increase the annual clean energy output dramatically at lower cost and on the same land footprint as before”, said Jens Kück, VP Sales Central at Vestas Northern & Central Europe. “Vestas is honoured to be selected to deliver our EnVentus turbines to this project. The V162-6.0 MW is a fantastic fit for projects in Northern Germany with good wind conditions. Our team is proud that we can empower the project to continue delivering clean electricity to the grid using best-in-class technology”.
“We are repowering 25 old wind turbines in this project with many different stakeholders, and therefore we have gone through a decision process lasting several years. We are convinced that with Vestas’ V162-6.0 MW we have chosen the best technology for our project and are starting a long partnership with the Vestas team,” says Olaf Nicolaisen for Repowering Wöhrden Poolgesellschaft GmbH & Co KG and Andreas Thomas for Windkraft Looft Persenweg GmbH & Co KG.
Deliveries at the Wöhrden repowering project are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2023, while commissioning is planned for the second quarter of 2023.
