Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has signed a conditional order agreement with EnBW to supply wind turbines for the 900MW He Dreiht offshore project in Germany.
The deal comes after EnBW pre-selected Vestas to supply the offshore wind turbines for the wind project last July through a European Union (EU) tender process.
Under the contract, Vestas will be responsible for the supply of 64 units of V236-15.0 MW wind turbines, as well as servicing the wind project for a number of years once operational.
The offshore wind power project is located in the German North Sea within 85km of the island of Borkum and 104km west of the island of Helgoland.
Vestas Northern and Central Europe president Nils de Baar said: “We are honoured to partner with EnBW in this conditional agreement for the He Dreiht wind project and provide our V236-15.0MW turbine to help Germany achieve its ambitious offshore wind energy goals.
“This project highlights how Vestas plays a leading role in the rapid expansion of offshore wind by continuously striving to build stronger partnerships with our customers such as EnBW and providing the right solutions that enable them to deliver the ambitious projects needed to reach European offshore wind targets.”
Vestas has also signed a conditional agreement with Cadeler, an offshore wind installation company, to transport and install the turbines for the He Dreiht wind farm.
The Danish company expects to begin installing the wind turbines at the project site in the second quarter of 2025, with the wind farm expected to be commissioned later that year.
Last month, Vestas secured a contract from Pan American Energy Energias Renováveis to supply and install wind turbines for the Novo Horizonte wind park in Bahia, Brazil.
The company will supply 94 of its V150-4.5 MW wind turbines for the 423MW wind facility.
