Vestas announced it will provide EPC wind energy solution for an order for 29 MW wind power plant from Avacon Natur, a subsidiary of German utility E.ON.
The seven V136-4.2 MW wind turbines at a hub height of 166m – the tallest standard towers currently offered by Vestas – provide excellent energy production for the project, which is located at a highly complex steel production facility in Lower Saxony.
“After an intensive planning phase and many hours together with Vestas, we are looking forward to the execution of this unique project,” said Torsten Hausmann, project manager, Avacon Natur.
Henning Krix, sales manager at Vestas, who initiated the project on the Vestas side, said the project will produce around 75 GWh per year, enough clean energy to provide the energy consumption of more than 20,000 German households.
The order comprises supply, installation, and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 20-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service agreement and a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution. Wind turbine delivery is planned to begin in the second quarter of 2020, with commissioning expected in the third quarter of 2020.
