Vestas has bagged a 36 MW repowering order for the final phase of the 94 MW Overgaard 1 wind park in Randers Municipality in Denmark.

The order is derived from the energy-neutral auction in November 2019 in Denmark and it is placed by SE Blue Renewables, a joint venture between the Danish energy company Norlys and Denmark’s largest pension company, PFA Pension.

Vestas said the order includes supply, installation and commissioning of ten V126-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

Once completed, the repowered wind park will almost quadruple the current site’s energy production, underlining the strong business case in replacing older turbines with newer and more efficient variants.

“We will utilise our service offerings and extensive market experience in Denmark to create maximum value for our customer’s business,” said Christer Baden Hansen, vice president Sales North and West, Vestas Northern & Central Europe.

Vestas will start the deliveries in the second quarter of 2021, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of 2021.
