These wind turbines orders are proof of a strong customer commitment to Vestas and to the V112-3.0 MW – a wind turbine that uses innovative technical solutions and proven technology to drive down the cost of energy for customers.
The 1000th MW of the V112-3.0 MW was ordered by Ostwind, a key wind farm customer for Vestas Central Europe and an experienced European wind power developer and operator. Ostwind recently placed 36 MW of various orders for the V112-3.0 MW for several projects in Germany, underlining the market’s confidence in the turbine and its appeal for low and medium wind projects.
“The V112-3.0 MW is ideal for the growing numbers of wind farm sites with low and medium wind speeds in our key market of Germany. We are therefore convinced that the wind turbine with its outstanding annual energy production delivers the best possible returns at these sites at very low costs of energy. Furthermore, due to the high reliability and productivity we already know from Vestas turbines in general, we expect to choose the V112-3.0 MW for even more sites going forward,” says Gisela Wendling-Lenz, CEO of Ostwind.
“I am very happy that we have now reached this important step for the V112-3.0 MW turbine,” says Hans Jörn Rieks, President of Vestas Central Europe. “Our agreement with Ostwind is a proof of our strong relationship with European wind developers, and I look forward to seeing this turbine being a workhorse for European wind power plants.”
The V112 provides exceptional yield for customers, thanks to its world-class testing, its design for outstanding serviceability and its compliance with even the strictest grid codes in the world. It also has appealing features that make transport and installation more flexible and easier.
Every single day, Vestas wind turbines deliver clean energy that supports the global fight against climate change. Wind power from Vestas’ more than 44,500 wind turbines currently reduces carbon emissions by approximately 50 million tons of CO2 every year, while at the same time building energy security and independence.
Vestas has installed wind turbines in 66 countries, and for our own operations alone we provide jobs for over 20,000 passionate people at our service and project sites, research facilities, factories and offices all over the world.
