Vestas has won a 36 MW repowering order for the Overgaard II wind project in Denmark from Wind Estate.

The order is derived from Denmark’s second energy neutral auction in 2019, and it is Vestas’ fourth repowering order from the two auction rounds for a total of more than 150 MW.

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

The ten new Vestas turbines will more than double the wind park’s energy production by replacing the current site’s eight 2 MW NEG Micon turbines.

Vestas earlier announced the order for the final phase of the 94 MW Overgaard I wind project. Once the 130 MW site is fully completed, it will make up Denmark’s largest onshore wind farm.

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