Vestas has signed a 25 MW contract with PNE AG for the Boitzenhagen wind project in Lower Saxony, Northern Germany.

The order is derived from Germany’s fourth wind energy auction in 2020. Vestas will start deliveries and commissioning in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Vestas developed a site-specific wind energy solution that features one V126-3.45 MW turbine at 137m hub height, and six V136-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode at 132m hub height in combination with a long-term service agreement.

“With this German wind project, we are reaching another milestone in our long-standing cooperation with Vestas,” said Markus Lesser, CEO of PNE AG.

“This year we are executing multiple deals with PNE in different counties across Europe. We are proud to be a part of their success both in their home market and internationally,” Alex Robertson, vice president Sales DACH, Vestas Northern and Central Europe, said.

The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement. The project will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and thus optimising the energy output.
