Vestas has secured its first order for a citizen-owned wind park from 2017’s second auction round in Germany. The order is placed by Rakower Bürgerwindpark and is for the repowering of a citizen-owned wind park located in Rakow, eastern Germany, at the Baltic Sea.
The project will replace four V66-1.65MW turbines with four V117-3.45MW turbines, totalling 14MW, which more than doubles the installed capacity and triple the annual energy production due to the more efficient turbines. The order includes supply and commissioning of the wind turbines and a full-scope service agreement (AOM 4000) for 20 years. Wind turbine delivery and commissioning is planned to start in the fourth quarter of 2018.
