Vestas wins 40 MW repowering order in Denmark
News release from Northern & Central Europe
Hamburg, 30 June 2022
Vestas has received a 40 MW order from Eurowind Energy A/S, a long-term client, for the Nørre Økse Sø repowering project in Northern Denmark.
The order includes the supply, installation, and commissioning of 11 V126-3.45 MW turbines in 3.6 MW operating mode, which will replace the site’s current legacy wind turbines. The order underlines how new and more efficient technology can replace older assets, enabling a strong business case for repowering aging wind farms.
The order also includes a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
Jens Rasmussen, CEO of Eurowind Energy A/S said: “We are happy to build on our extensive relationship with Vestas. The Nørre Økse Sø Wind farm will supply 33.000 Danish households with green power and will be a welcome contribution to the green transition of our energy system in Denmark. We have a long and very stable relationship with Vestas and we look forward to begin the construction of Nørre Økse Sø together”.
“We are proud to continue to partner with Eurowind Energy A/S, one of our key customers in Europe, for a repowering project in the country where Vestas’ own journey began,” said Nils de Baar, Regional President NCE Region for Vestas. “Our strong presence at the Danish home market gives us the means to utilise our proven service offerings and extensive market experience to create maximum value for our customer's business case”.
Deliveries and installation at the Nørre Økse Sø wind project are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2023, while commissioning is planned to end in the fourth quarter of 2023.
