An order for a 29MW wind power plant has been placed by Avacon Natur, a subsidiary of German utility E.ON. The seven V136-4.2 MW wind turbines at a hub height of 166 metres provide energy production for a steel production facility in Lower Saxony.
The facility’s limited space and industrial infrastructure requires a specific transportation and installation solution to construct the project while not disrupting ongoing steel production. The scope of supply for Vestas includes the civil EPC part of this project, including the design and building of foundations, roads and crane pads. The order comprises supply, installation, and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 20-year service agreement. Wind turbine delivery is planned to begin in the second quarter of 2020, with commissioning expected in the third quarter of 2020.
