October 7th, 2019, Published in Articles: Energize

Vestas has secured a 31 MW order from Windpark Albertshof, a subsidiary of the public utility Berliner Stadtwerke, for a wind park near Albertshof, Brandenburg. The company provides a full engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) solution, leveraging its extensive experience from turnkey projects globally.

Apart from the supply and installation of the wind turbines, the order includes civil and electrical works, building and commissioning of a substation, grid connection, as well as a 23-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. The company has developed a technology solution to fit the site’s wind conditions that includes eight V117-3,45 MW turbines and one V126-3,45 MW turbines in different hub heights. The site’s mixed turbine setup demonstrates the flexibility of Vestas’ 4 MW platform as well as Vestas’ ability to create optimised site layouts.
