Vestas scores on home ground
Deal with European Energy for 11 V117 turbines at 36MW Rødby Fjord
Vestas has won an order to supply hardware at the 36MW Rødby Fjord wind farm in its native Denmark.
The deal with European Energy A/S covers 11 of the manufacturer’s V117 3.3MW turbines (pictured), which will be installed on the island of Lolland.
In addition to supply, installation and commissioning of the turbines the contract takes in a 15-year service agreement. Deliveries are expected in the fourth quarter.
Vestas has delivered turbines for other European Energy projects in Europe, including in St Røttinge, Ritalba, and Ottenhausen.
“For more than 10 years, Vestas has been an important partner for European Energy when it comes to successful wind energy projects throughout Europe,” said European Energy chief executive Knud Erik Andersen.
“The Vestas V117 helps us improve our business case certainty and we have high hopes for the Rødby Fjord project.”
Vestas president for Northern Europe Klaus Steen Mortensen added: “In Denmark most wind farms are placed along the western coastline facing the North Sea. This project in south eastern Denmark reaffirms that wind power makes sense across the country.
“Rødby Fjord is known as a site with great wind resources and we look forward to realising the project together with European Energy later this year.”
