Vestas to supply turbines for offshore wind farm in Germany

The Danish company will also service the wind project for several years once it is operational.

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.

Wind Power Market seeing increased risk and disruption

The wind power market has grown at a CAGR of 14% between 2010 and 2021 to reach 830 GW by end of 2021. This has largely been possible due to favourable government policies that have provided incentives to the sector. This has led to an increase in the share of wind in the capacity mix, going from a miniscule 4% in 2010 to 10% in 2021. This is further set to rise to 15% by 2030. However, the recent commodity price increase has hit the sector hard, increasing risks for wind turbine manufacturers and project developers, and the Russia-Ukraine crisis has caused further price increase and supply chain disruption. In light of this, GlobalData has identified which countries are expected to add the majority of wind power capacity out to 2030.

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.
