Vestas Wins Repowering Order

Vestas has received a 36 MW repowering order for the Overgaard II wind project from Wind Estate A/S, one of Denmark’s leading energy companies.

The order is derived from Denmark’s second energy neutral auction in 2019, and it is Vestas’ fourth repowering order from the two auction rounds for a total of more than 150 MW, highlighting Vestas’ auction capabilities as well as Denmark’s large repowering potential.

As a pioneer in wind energy, Denmark has a large portion of first-generation wind turbines and a big share of the country’s active wind turbines is expected to be decommissioned in the coming years. The ten new Vestas turbines will more than double the wind park’s energy production by replacing the current site’s eight 2 MW NEG Micon turbines.

The firm order includes supply, installation and commissioning of ten V126-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode, as well as a ten-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

Deliveries are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2021, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of 2021.
