Press Release:

Vestas and RWE partner to take preferred supplier and exclusivity agreements for Norfolk Wind Zone forward

News release from Northern & Central Europe

Hamburg, 22 December 2023

Vestas is pleased to announce that we will partner with RWE, one of the leading renewable energy companies worldwide, in bringing the Norfolk Wind Zone in the UK forward, following yesterday’s agreement between RWE and Vattenfall for RWE to take over the three Norfolk projects. The announcement follows our previous announcement that Vestas and Vattenfall had signed a preferred supplier agreement (PSA) of 1,380 MW for the Norfolk Vanguard West project and exclusivity agreements of 2,760 MW for the Norfolk Vanguard East and Norfolk Boreas projects.

Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe, says: “Wind energy and offshore wind continue to attract investments, and we’re excited to partner with RWE on the Norfolk Wind Zone projects. Partnering with RWE on Norfolk Wind Zone follows their agreement with Vattenfall, and we are pleased to add these projects to our existing partnership with RWE, including Nordseecluster, which we announced earlier this year. Leading players in renewable energy in Europe collaborating in this way to bring forward projects that will make a huge difference for both offshore wind and UK’s energy supply is very positive for both the energy industry and the energy transition.

Sven Utermöhlen, CEO RWE Offshore Wind, says: “With the acquisition of the Norfolk Offshore Wind Zone portfolio, we are taking over three well-advanced offshore wind projects. I am very happy that we will continue and further build upon the existing arrangements with Vestas on these projects, and by that extend our partnership with Vestas in offshore wind. We are looking forward to jointly contribute to the buildout of offshore wind in the UK with these fantastic projects.“

If and when the agreements between RWE and Vestas materialise into one or more orders for Vestas, these will be disclosed in accordance with the company’s disclosure policy.
