Vestas is pleased to announce a firm and unconditional order from KGE Windpark Schipkau Nord GmbH & Co. KG. Vestas’ long-term customer Ventotec has developed this repowering project. The wind power plant will be repowered in Brandenburg and is one of the largest repowering projects in Germany. Turbine delivery is planned to begin in the second half of 2014 with commissioning expected completed in the first quarter of 2015.
The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the 19 V112-3.3 MW turbines, along with a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution and a 15-year full-scope service agreement (AOM 4000). ‘
“We are pleased to continue our successful long-term collaboration with Vestas that started in 1999 with the installation of our V66-wind power plant in Klettwitz. Based on our long-standing relationship with Vestas, we trust in the wind energy solutions, the experience and knowledge they offer for most efficiently repowering this large wind project”, say Ralf Heinen and Helmer Stecker, Managing Directors of Ventotec.
“It is a pleasure for us to announce an order for 19 V112-3.3 MW turbines for one of the largest repowering projects in Germany and to realise it together with our valued long-term customer Ventotec, who developed the project for KGE Windpark Schipkau Nord GmbH & Co.
