November 13 (Renewables Now) - Danish wind turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) will repower a 22.75-MW wind park located in the Niedere Tauern mountain range in Austria.
Vestas said today it will supply nine V112-3.45 MW turbines to repower the facility, Tauernwindpark, which currently uses 13 machines of the V66-1750 kW type.
As the wind farm is situated at 1,900 metres (6,234 ft) above sea level, Vestas provided a tailor-made solution to the owner of the project, ImWind. This includes a customised solution to transport the turbines to and from the site and the provision of site-specific towers with a hub height of 106 m.
"With the solution for Tauernwindpark, our highly valued long-term customer ImWind gets technology that meets specific requirements with regard to load, turbulence and weight for a wind park located at a height of 1,900 metres," said Nils de Baar, president of Vestas Central Europe.
