Vestas has won a 63 MW order to supply, install and commission 16 wind turbines for two projects in central Jutland, Denmark. With this order, Vestas has secured the total 135 MW wind volume of the second technology-neutral auction in Denmark in 2019.
The order is placed by Eurowind Energy A/S, a key customer for Vestas in Denmark and Europe.
Developed in collaboration with local partner Vindteam, the St. Soels project will comprise seven V126-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode, while the Veddum Kær project will feature nine V136-4.2 MW turbines. As Eurowind Energy A/S has developed both projects as co-located wind and solar power plants, the final energy output to the grid will consist of a hybrid mix.
Both projects will feature a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution, offering real-time data insight from a diverse mix of data streams to enable more accurate forecasting. The system will enable decreased turbine downtime and optimised energy output to the electricity prices. The contract also includes a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
Turbine deliveries are expected to begin end of 2020 for the St. Soels project and in 2Q2021 for the Veddum Kær project. Commissioning for St. Soels is planned for 1Q2021 and for Veddum Kær for 3Q2021.
