Vestas has secured a 42 MW order for the repowering project in Schleswig Holstein, Germany, with Repowering Wöhrden Poolgesellschaft GmbH & Co KG and Windkraft Looft Persenweg GmbH & Co. KG.

Vestas will supply, install, and service seven V162-6.0 MW turbines, replacing the 25 legacy turbines now powering the site, which will increase the energy output and extend the lifetime of the project site with Vestas’ 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’ service expertise through the lifetime of the project.

“The repowering of the Wöhrden project is an excellent example of repowering projects driving the clean energy transition,” said Jens Kück, VP Sales Central at Vestas Northern & Central Europe. “By moving toward 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. Vestas is honored 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.”

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.
