LEAG Renewables selects Vestas for 105 MW German wind energy project

By Editor


Vestas and LEAG have agreed on a 105 MW order for the Forst-Briesnig II wind energy project in the Lausitz region, Germany.

Vestas will supply 17 V162-6.2 MW wind turbines, including their delivery and commissioning. Upon completion, the turbines will be serviced under a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement to ensure optimal performance and longevity.

The Forst-Briesnig II project, located on a former brown coal mining site, marks LEAG’s first wind energy venture. Developed by LEAG Renewables, a subsidiary focused on renewable energy projects, this initiative is a significant milestone in transforming the Lausitz region into a renewable industrial and energy hub as part of the larger GigawattFactory energy transition project.

“Securing the second-largest building permit for an onshore wind farm in Germany and finalizing this contract are key milestones for the successful realization of the Forst-Briesnig II wind farm,” said Dominique Guillou, CEO of LEAG Renewables.

Jens Kuck, Senior Vice President Sales Onshore of Vestas Northern and Central Europe, added, “We are supporting LEAG in their transformation journey and engaging in this significant project, showcasing our strong ability to provide the right solutions for technically complex projects.”

Thorsten Kramer, CEO of LEAG, stated, “With LEAG Renewables as our new center of competence for renewable energy and experienced partners like Vestas, LEAG will build one of the largest onshore renewable energy networks in Germany, establishing the Lausitz region as a pioneer in the energy transition in Europe.”

Turbine delivery is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2025, with commissioning scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2026.
