Wind energy giant Vestas has been chosen to supply seven V150-6MW wind turbines for the Bosau wind project in Germany by Strom 2020. This strategic order encompasses the complete process, from supply and delivery to commissioning, with Vestas subsequently providing 20 years of service under an Active Output Management 5000 agreement, ensuring the consistent optimization of asset performance.
The Bosau wind project is situated in Schleswig-Holstein, located between Lubeck and Kiel. The delivery of the wind turbines is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2025, with commissioning targeted for completion in the third quarter of the same year.
Vestas' remarkable achievement in securing this order has propelled its order intake for 2023 past the impressive 10GW mark. This milestone marks the eighth consecutive year in which Vestas has exceeded the 10GW threshold, showcasing the company's enduring leadership and pioneering role in the global wind industry, which spans more than four decades.
Jens Kuck, Senior Vice President Sales Onshore for Northern and Central Europe at Vestas, expressed his appreciation for the collaboration with Strom 2020, emphasizing the suitability of the V150-6.0MW turbines for sites with stronger wind speeds. These turbines are expected to play a crucial role in advancing the energy transition in Schleswig-Holstein.
Malte Carstens, Managing Director of Strom 2020, shared his enthusiasm for the partnership, highlighting the project's culmination after years of planning and the resilience demonstrated during various stages of development. He expressed optimism for the future, the wind turbines' construction and operation, and the prospect of a fruitful collaboration.
The Bosau wind project represents another significant step in advancing Germany's renewable energy goals and contributing to a more sustainable energy landscape. Vestas' consistent achievement of 10GW-plus order intakes reaffirms its position as a frontrunner in the wind energy sector.
