Vestas has announcend an order for 22 V112-3.45 MW turbines from Looft-Schmidt Projekte Erneuerbarer Energien GmbH. The turbines will replace 40 different types of turbines at the Norderwöhrden wind park in Schleswig-Holstein, Northern Germany.

According to Vestas, 13 different companies are involved in the repowering project. The order comprises supply and commissioning of the wind turbines as well as a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM5000) service contract and VestasOnline Business SCADA solution. The delivery and commissioning of the wind turbines is planned to begin in the third quarter of 2017.

Peter Looft and Michael Schmidt, General Managers at Looft-Schmidt Projekte Erneuerbarer Energien GmbH said: “Together with Kaiser-Wilhelm-Koog, Norderwöhrden 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. 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. Vestas’ efficient technology combined with their well-known smooth project execution convinced us to choose them as our partner once again. This great project has brought 13 different operating companies together and the collaboration, engagement and support from all parties are key to the realisation of it”.

“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”, states Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Central Europe. “With five different rotor sizes, taller towers, and different power modes, maximising annual energy production and optimising levelised cost of energy, the platform repeatedly proves its versatility across a variety of German wind regimes to the benefit of our customers”.
