July 8 (Renewables Now) - Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) will supply 41 MW of turbines for a project to expand a citizen-owned wind farm in Germany’s northern state of Schleswig-Holstein.
The order was placed by Buergerwindpark Reussenkoege GmbH & Co KG, to which Vestas will deliver 12 units of its V112-3.45 MW machines.
The turbine maker said Monday the new turbines will boost the wind farm’s installed capacity to 210 MW. There is also a possibility for further expansion to 300 MW in the coming years.
In its current form, the citizen-owned wind farm produces around 600,000 MWh per year, enough to supply power to some half a million local residents.
Vestas plans to begin the delivery in the third quarter of 2020 and commission the turbines during the following quarter.
