Vestas has received a 43 MW order from NOTUS energy Plan for the Gunthersdorf project located in Brandenburg in eastern Germany.
Vestas has developed a solution to fit the site’s low to medium wind conditions that features eleven V136-3.45 MW turbines and one V126-3.45 MW turbine with all 12 turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode with hub heights of 132m and 137m respectively.
The customised site configuration in combination with a 20-year Active Output Management (AOM 4000) service agreement demonstrates both the flexibility of Vestas’ 4 MW platform turbines, and Vestas’ ability to create tailormade site layouts designed to optimise the energy production of wind projects while minimising the environmental impact.
“We started planning the project in 2008 with V90 turbines, later pursued V112 turbines, then got V126-3.45 MW turbines approved after a few years, and finally optimised for the V136-3.45 MW,” said Heiner Roger, CEO NOTUS energy Plan GmbH.
“In this project, the versatility of our turbine portfolio enabled our valued customer NOTUS to upgrade from the originally permitted V126 to the V136 with only a minor change to their permit,” said Nils de Baar, president of Vestas Northern & Central Europe.
The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement. The project will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime.
Vestas will start deliveries in the second quarter of 2021, while commissioning is planned for the third quarter of 2021.
