ImWind selects Vestas for 68 MW wind power project in Austria

By Editor


Vestas has received a 68 MW order from ImWind Erneuerbare Energie for a wind power project in Loidesthal, Austria.

Vestas, one of the wind turbine makers, said the order includes supply, delivery, and commissioning of ten V162-6.2 MW wind turbines and one V150-6.0 MW turbine. Vestas did not reveal financial details of the contract with ImWind Erneuerbare Energie.

Vestas says the V162-6.2 MW delivers excellent Annual Energy Production under low to medium average wind conditions for primarily pad-constrained markets. The V162-6.2 MW has extensive applicability in high average wind speeds due to the large operational envelope.

Vestas says the V162-6.2 MW has a standard Sound Power Level of 104.8dB(A) and up to 30 percent higher energy production than the V150-4.2 MW.

Vestas will service the turbines under a 25-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement designed to ensure optimised performance of the assets.

“This project with our valued client, ImWind Erneuerbare Energie GmbH, enables a highly competitive business case,” said Christoph Manseder, Senior Director of Sales for Austria and Switzerland at Vestas.

“For this significant project, we have decided in favour of our long-standing and reliable partner Vestas. We are now looking forward towards a successful construction phase and commissioning of our turbines,” said Georg Waldner, CEO of ImWind.

The order from ImWind Erneuerbare Energie is an extension of the existing Loidesthal wind project that consists of eight V126-3.45 MW turbines.

Vestas said turbine delivery is expected to begin in 2025 with commissioning scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2026. News Desk
