Vestas has secured a 960MW firm order for its offshore wind turbine V236-15.0 MW. The order includes 64 V236-15.0 MW wind turbines for the He Dreiht project located in the German waters of the North Sea.
Vestas will also deliver a five-year service agreement followed by a long-term Operational Support Agreement. The project has a grid connection capacity of 900MW and an excess capacity of 60MW in order to use the connection capacity as efficiently as possible, even when production is lower. Installation is planned to begin in the second quarter of 2025, and commissioning is scheduled for the fourth quarter of the same year. The V236-15.0 MW was introduced to the market in February 2021 and the installation of the prototype turbine was completed in December. The prototype is currently undergoing a test and verification programme to ensure reliability before full type certification.
