Vestas has secured an order for 11 V117-3.3 MW turbines in Denmark, to be installed on the island of Lolland.
The 36 MW order for the Rødby Fjord project has been placed by long-time Vestas customer European Energy A/S. The order includes supply, installation, and commissioning of the turbines, along with a 15-year full-scope Vestas Active Output Management (AOM 4000) service agreement. Turbine delivery is expected in the fourth quarter of 2015.
“For more than 10 years, Vestas has been an important partner for European Energy when it comes to successful wind energy projects throughout Europe. We are very pleased to work with Vestas and build on our strong relationship. The Vestas V117 helps us improve our business case certainty, and we have high hopes for the Rødby Fjord project,” says CEO Knud Erik Andersen, European Energy A/S.
Vestas has delivered wind turbines for other European Energy A/S projects in Europe, including in St. Røttinge, Ritalba, and Ottenhausen.
“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,” says Klaus Steen Mortensen, President of Vestas Northern Europe.
In Denmark, Vestas has more than 3 GW installed capacity and employs more than 4,200 people. Several Danish factories also serve as Centres of Excellence and train Vestas employees from all over the world.
Every single day, Vestas wind turbines deliver clean energy that supports the global fight against climate change. Wind power from Vestas’ more than 53,700 wind turbines currently reduces carbon emissions by over 60 million tons of CO2 every year, while at the same time building energy security and independence.
Vestas has delivered wind energy in 73 countries, providing jobs for around 19,700 passionate people at our service and project sites, research facilities, factories and offices all over the world. With 52 per cent more megawatts installed than our closest competitor and more than 66 GW of cumulative installed capacity worldwide, Vestas is the world leader in wind energy.
