Repowering Europe's Highest Wind Farm

Vestas is to repower the Tauernwindfarm in Austria - a task that requires special solutions

The Tauernwindfarm is located in the Styrian Niedere Tauern massif at an altitude of 1,900 metres above sea level. This makes it one of the highest wind farms in Europe. Currently, the wind farm consists of 13 wind turbines with a capacity of 22.75 megawatts. After the repowering has been completed, nine V112-3.45 MW turbines will be left in place of the existing V66-1750kW turbines, which will significantly increase the capacity of the wind farm.

A wind power project in such an environment is challenging, not only with regard to the turbulences caused by the mountains, but also with regard to the logistical challenges of the remote location.

Vestas has a highly versatile product portfolio that made it possible to develop a solution that is customised to the specific characteristics of our wind farm in this really unique location”, says Johannes Trauttmansdorff of wind farm owner ImWind. ”The tailor-made solution enables us to achieve the lowest cost of energy at the Tauernwindpark; to us, one of the most important aspects of this project.”
