Turbine maker Vestas has received a 26 MW order for a citizen-owned wind park, located in southern Germany.
Windpark Kirchberg GmbH & Co.KG has placed an order of eight Vestas V126-3.3 MW turbines for a 26.4 MW wind park, located in Baden Wurttemberg. With a greater than 90% share, the community will own a larger share of this wind park than any other in southern Germany.
The turbines will be installed in the Hohenlohe region in northeast Baden Wurttemberg, with delivery expected to start in the first quarter of 2016 and commissioning expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2016. The project will use the Vestas-patented large-diameter steel towers with 137-meter hub heights.
The contract comprises supply, installation and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a 15-year service agreement.
