Vestas adds 257 MW order in Netherlands at Windplan Groen complex


Vestas has received a 257 MW order from Windkoepel Groen for seven projects in the Netherlands. The order includes supply and installation of 37 V162-6.2 MW EnVentus wind turbines, with some delivered in 6.0 MW operating mode, and eight V126-3.45 MW wind turbines delivered in 3.8 MW operating mode.

The seven projects are part of Windplan Groen, a collective initiative to repower existing windfarms in the Eastern part of the Province of Flevoland. The individual owners are joined in Windkoepel Groen.

“This project is an excellent example of community members banding together to drive forward the clean energy transition, by adding new technology to existing sites in the Netherlands,” Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe, said.

Vestas will provide service for the project through long-term Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreements, providing power performance certainty and Vestas’ industry-leading service expertise throughout the lifetime of the project.

Vestas is planning to deliver the first wind turbines in the third quarter of 2022. The final wind turbines will be commissioned in late 2023.
