The order was placed by Eurowind Energy A/S, a leading developer and operator of sustainable energy projects and a key customer for Vestas in Denmark and Europe.
Developed in collaboration with local partner Vindteam, the St. Soels project will comprise seven V126-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode, while the Veddum Kær project will feature nine V136-4.2 MW turbines. As Eurowind Energy A/S has developed both projects as co-located wind and solar power plants, the final energy output to the grid will consist of a hybrid mix.
“These two orders seal our longstanding collaboration with Vestas, and we look forward to strengthening this cooperation even further” said Jens Rasmussen, CEO of Eurowind Energy A/S. “Both projects will be hybrid projects with integrated wind and solar power plants to optimise grid capacities, and we are very proud to execute these milestone projects in Denmark. The 4 MW platform from Vestas has with our experience shown to be a very reliable turbine technology, and we believe that these turbine types are the perfect match for St. Soels and Veddum Kær”.
Both projects will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, offering real-time data insight from a diverse mix of data streams to enable more accurate forecasting. The system will enable decreased turbine downtime and optimised energy output to the electricity prices. The contract also includes a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
Turbine deliveries are expected to begin end of 2020 for the St. Soels project and in the second quarter of 2021 for the Veddum Kær project. Commissioning for St. Soels is planned for the first quarter 2021 and for Veddum Kær for the third quarter of 2021.
