September 26 -- Vestas has received an order of 66 MW for repowering the Lensahner Berg/Gaarz wind farm in the northeast of Schleswig-Holstein in Germany.
Vestas received the order from four customers; Gaarz IV Windkraft GmbH & Co. KG, and three smaller project companies.
Vestas said the wind power project includes 11 V162-6.2 MW turbines in 6.0 MW operating mode with 119m towers in combination with a 25-year full maintenance contract (AOM 5000) to maximize annual energy production.
The customers will repower the wind project by replacing the legacy turbines currently powering the site, which will increase the energy output and extend the lifetime of the project site with Vestas’ EnVentus platform.
Vestas said deliveries and installation of the wind turbines are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2023, while commissioning is expected to complete by the fourth quarter of the same year.
