Vestas has signed a contract with NOTUS energy Plan GmbH to supply its EnVentus platform for the first time in Germany.
The 11 MW contract includes two V150-5.6 MW turbines and a 25-year service contract for the Beesenberg II wind project in Brandenburg, Eastern Germany.
The turbines will be integrated to the already installed wind power plant Beesenberg and Lübbenow, where the first German V150-4.2 MW turbines, ordered in 2018, are currently under construction.
The turbines feature Vestas’ LDST tower technology to go to 166m hub heights, and reach stronger and more consistent wind speeds, which will increase the annual energy production and lower the levelized cost of energy, Vestas said.
“The EnVentus platform represents the next generation in the evolution of wind turbines and we are looking forward to developing the first EnVentus wind energy project in Germany,” said Heiner Röger, CEO of NOTUS energy Plan.
The contract includes a 25-year certified life time that enables the turbines to operate without a new technical qualification after the current standard of 20 years.
The order comprises supply, installation, and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 25-year Active Output Management (AOM 4000) service agreement and a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution.
Wind turbine delivery and commissioning is planned to begin in the fourth quarter of 2020.
