Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) has signed a conditional agreement with Energie Baden-Wuerttemberg AG (ETR:EBK), or EnBW, to supply turbines for the 900-MW He Dreiht offshore wind project in German waters of the North Sea.
The Danish manufacturer will deliver 64 V236-15.0 MW machines for the project in 2025, it said on Tuesday. Depending on site-specific conditions, one turbine of this type is capable of producing 80 GWh per year which is enough to power around 20,000 European households.
The order includes also a multi-year solution to service the wind project, which will be located 90 km (55.92mi) northwest of Borkum in the North Sea.
Danish Cadeler, which operates wind farm installation vessels, has been contracted for the transportation and installation of the turbines for the He Dreiht project.
The plan is to begin the installation of the machines in the second quarter of 2025 and fully commission the park in the fourth quarter of the same year.
Vestas is currently working on the prototype development of the V236-15.0 MW turbine with serial production planned to start in 2024.
The efficient use of He Dreiht's grid connection capacity of 900 MW will be strengthened by an excess capacity of 60 MW.
