Vestas has 1.1 GW of wind turbine orders in Europe at the end of December

In the final days of the fourth quarter, Vestas announced orders for 1,076 MW to supply wind turbines for several projects, including a repowering project, in several European countries.

The contracts, disclosed between December 21 and 31, refer to projects in Italy, Germany, Spain, Northern Ireland and the Netherlands.

The order is for the Hollandse Kust West VI offshore wind farm, which will be built off the Dutch coast by local wind farm developer Ecowende and is the largest, totaling 780 MW.

Two of the contracts were signed in Germany. The first is an order from BayWa r.e. for the Dollenkamp wind farm in Brakel, North Rhine-Westphalia. This is the delivery of eight V162-5.6 MW wind turbines from Vestas. The wind turbines are planned to be delivered in the second quarter of 2025. Commissioning of the site is planned for the fourth quarter of 2025.

The second German contract is for a 42 MW wind repowering project in a former iron ore mining area. It was carried out by WindStrom Erneuerbare Energien GmbH & Co.KG and concerns the Schacht Konrad II wind farm. Vestas will deliver four V162-6.2 MW and three V162-5.6 MW wind turbines starting in the first quarter of 2025. The wind farm is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2025.

In Italy, Vestas has been contracted for a 125 MW wind project. The company will supply and install 10 V136-4.5 MW wind turbines and 19 V136-4.2 MW wind turbines. Delivery is planned for the first quarter of 2025, while commissioning will occur in the third quarter of 2025.

At the same time, ERG SpA has awarded the wind turbine manufacturer an order for the 47 MW Corlacky Hill wind farm in Northern Ireland. Starting in the second quarter of 2025, Vestas will supply 11 of its V117-4.2 MW wind turbines in 4.3 MW operational mode. The clean energy generation facility is expected to come online in the fourth quarter of 2025.

The Spanish order corresponds to the supply and installation of six V162-6.2 MW wind turbines whose delivery will begin in the second half of 2024. The machines are expected to be switched on in the first half of 2025.
