Vestas has announced a firm and unconditional order for the Hüselitz wind power plant in eastern Germany that includes an option for an additional 19 turbines. Hüselitz will be located in Saxony-Anhalt. Turbine delivery is expected to start in the third quarter of 2015, with commissioning expected for the end of 2015 and the beginning of 2016.
The contract includes supply, installation, and commissioning of the turbines, along with a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, and a 15-year full-scope service agreement (AOM 5000).
“For more than 15 years, Vestas has been an important partner for CPC Germania when it comes to successful wind energy projects in Europe. Driving product innovation and solid partnership throughout the entire process, as well as ensuring reliable product life cycles, and a corporate culture that supports the collaboration with medium-sized enterprises is key to us,” states Markus Tacke, CEO of CPC Germania.
“Vestas looks forward to building on its long-term partnership with CPC Germania and to bringing the Hüselitz project online together with them,” says Dr. Christoph Vogel, President of Vestas Central Europe. “The turbines of our 3 MW platform are an optimal choice, providing proven technology and low cost of energy—both of which support our customer’s business case.”
