Vestas has received its first firm order for a prototype of the V162-7.2 MW wind turbine. The order was placed by Bürgerwindpark Janneby eG for the Janneby wind project in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.
In September 2023, Vestas also installed a V162-7.2 MW prototype in the Østerild National test centre for large wind turbines in Western Jutland, Denmark. The two prototypes will undergo an extensive test and verification programme before serial production begins. The order includes supply, delivery, and commissioning of one V162-7.2 MW wind turbine and Vestas will service the prototype under a 20-year service agreement. Turbine delivery will begin in the first quarter of 2024 with commissioning scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2024.
