Vestas receives 84 MW order for Neusiedl-Weiden wind energy project in Austria

By Editor


Vestas has received an 84 MW order from BE Energy GmbH, a subsidiary of Burgenland Energie AG, to repower a part of the Neusiedl-Weiden wind energy project in Austria.

Vestas will supply 14 V150-6.0 MW wind turbines, and the order includes supply, delivery, and commissioning of the turbines. Vestas did not reveal the size of the contract.

Vestas will service the turbines under a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement designed to ensure optimised performance of the assets.

Neusiedl-Weiden is one of Austria’s largest repowering projects to date with 44 older turbines due to be replaced.

“This underlines the great significance repowering projects can have for the energy transition as fewer and more powerful units will be installed in an already developed location,” states Christoph Manseder, Senior Director, Sales, for Austria & Switzerland at Vestas.

Mag. Klaus Maras, Managing Director of BE Energy GmbH, said: “With Vestas, we have a reliable partner at our side to achieve the desired energy independence in Burgenland and are convinced that the desired quality and delivery dates will be met.”

Vestas said turbine delivery is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2025 with commissioning scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2025.
