Vestas Wind Systems A/S announced 545 megawatts of turbine orders across the Europe region last week, including one for a 257-megawatt portion of Windplan Groen repowering program in the Netherlands. The Windkoepel Groen program, which oversees the Windplan Groen venture in Dutch province of Flevoland, has chosen the Danish wind turbine manufacturer to supply turbines for seven facilities in the community repowering program. The contract asks for the delivery and installation of 37 EnVentus wind turbines (V162-6.2 MW), some of which are going to be supplied in a 6 MW working mode, as well as V126-3.45 MW wind turbines in a 3.8 MW mode.

The first machines are expected to be delivered in the 3rd quarter of the year 2022, with the last units coming online in late 2023. The repowered wind farms are going to be serviced by Vestas company under the long-term AOM 5000 (Active Output Management 5000) service arrangements.

Vestas has also been tasked with supplying and installing turbines for 116-MW Windpark Maasvlakte dual program in the Netherlands. Domestic utility Eneco, which won a bid for its development held by Dutch Directorate-General for the Public Works and Water Management last year, will construct the wind farm in Rotterdam port region.

Thirteen V162-6.0 MW turbines and 9 V117-4.2 MW turbines in 4.3 MW mode will be used in the wind farm. Turbine deliveries are going to start in the 2nd quarter of the year 2022, with the factory expected to be operational by the close of the year. It will be capable of generating 416 GWh of electricity per year once fully operational, which is enough to power 152,000 houses for a year.

AOM 5000 service deal for the long term is included. The Wohrden repowering program in Schleswig Holstein state has ordered seven V162-6.0 MW turbines from Vestas’ EnVentus platform, totaling 42 MW. The new turbines will take the place of the 25 legacy turbines that currently power the wind farm. The repowered wind farm is going to be launched in the 2nd quarter of 2023, with deliveries starting during the first quarter of the year 2023.

Repowering Windkraft Looft Persenweg GmbH & Co KG as well as Wohrden Poolgesellschaft GmbH & Co KG were awarded the contract, which also includes an AOM 4000 service agreement that is . Passat Energy Sp zoo, which is a special purpose vehicle possessed by Iberdrola Renovables Internacional SAU, has chosen Vestas to fit its 50-MW Korytnica II wind facility in central Poland. This project will add 14 units of V126-3.45 MW turbines in 3.6 MW mode to the current 83-MW Korytnica I complex, that includes 25 V126-3.3 MW Vestas machines. Vestas will maintain the extension under a long-term deal.

Korytnica II is set to launch in early 2023 and is going to be supported by Poland’s Contracts for Difference (CfD) program. Vestas plans to commence delivering turbines in the fourth quarter of 2022. An 80-MW agreement in France, given by renewable power producer H2air and supported by an AOM 5000 service agreement, that has a duration period of 20-year, is among Vestas’ most recent European orders. Vestas will supply and deploy turbines from its platform (4-MW) at 3 locations under this contract. Twelve V150 rotor turbines will be installed at the Ardennes I wind facility in Grand-Est, while 11 V126 rotor turbines will be installed at the Aisne I and Somme I parks situated in Hauts de France.
