The order is for a total of 11 MW with the turbines integrated into the already installed wind power plant at Beesenberg and Lübbenow, where the first German V150-4.2 MW turbines, ordered in 2018, are currently under construction. This is the first order for the EnVentus platform in Germany and the project will feature the first V150-5.6 MW turbines worldwide.
The turbines for the project will come with a 25-year certified life time that enables the turbines to operate without a new technical qualification after the current standard of 20 years.
“As an experienced project developer and successful, long-term partner of Vestas, we trust the versatile and highly efficient energy solutions they provide” said Heiner Röger, CEO of NOTUS energy Plan GmbH & Co. KG. “The EnVentus platform represents the next generation in the evolution of wind turbines and we are looking forward to developing the first EnVentus wind energy project in Germany”.
Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe, added that by deploying its first V150-5.6 MW turbines, Vestas will ensure the lowest cost of energy, creating maximum value for customer’s business case.
Utilising Vestas’ LDST tower technology to go to 166 metre hub heights, the V150-5.6 MW turbines will reach stronger and more consistent wind speeds, which will increase the annual energy production and lower the levelised cost of energy.
The order comprises supply, installation, and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 25-year Active Output Management (AOM 4000) service agreement and a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution. Wind turbine delivery and commissioning is planned to begin in the fourth quarter of 2020.
