Vestas has received an order from Looft-Schmidt Projekte Erneuerbarer Energien GmbH for 22 V112-3.45 MW turbines to be used in a 76 MW repowering project in Northern Germany.

According to the company, the turbines will be installed at the Norderwohrden wind park in Schleswig-Holstein, Northern Germany, and will replace 40 different types of turbines installed over the last 30 years.

With 13 different companies involved, the company says this project is the result of great collaboration, demonstrating how repowering can provide improved return on investment across asset owners.

The firm and unconditional order comprises supply and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 service contract and VestasOnline Business SCADA solution.

Wind turbine delivery and commissioning is planned to begin in the third quarter.

“Together with Kaiser-Wilhelm-Koog, Norderwohrden is the cradle of the German energy transition and, thus, a special place within wind energy in Germany, with the first turbines being installed more than 30 years ago,” says Peter Looft and Michael Schmidt, general managers at Looft-Schmidt Projekte Erneuerbarer Energien GmbH. “We are looking forward to repower our wind park with Vestas and the V112-3.45 MW turbine, which, together with the service agreement, provides the ideal wind solution for this project.”

“We are happy that Looft-Schmidt Projekte Erneuerbarer Energien has again chosen Vestas and opted for our V112-3.45 MW for this repowering project,” comments Nils de Baar, president of Vestas Central Europe. “With five different rotor sizes, taller towers and different power modes, maximizing annual energy production, and optimizing levelized cost of energy, the platform repeatedly proves its versatility across a variety of German wind regimes to the benefit of our customers.”
