VenSol Neue Energien GmbH is planning to install up to 30 wind turbines of the type Siemens Gamesa SWT-DD-142 by the year 2020. The Babenhausen based company plans to offer the turbines for different projects in Germany and will also use them in its own developments. The company, headquartered in the lower Allgäu region, has now secured the supply of the turbines within a framework agreement with Siemens Gamesa. Today the contract was signed by VenSol’s Director Christian Böhm and Siemens Gamesa’s German sales head Gunnar Liehr at the booth of the turbine supplier in hall 3 of the trade show HUSUM Wind 2017.

With this contract Siemens Gamesa is committed to supply, install and commission its turbines at a cost competitive LCoE. VenSol intends to equip projects in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate, Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia and Thuringia with this cutting edge technology. The model SWT-DD-142 can be operated with a site specific generator rating between 3.5 and 3.9 megawatts (MW). With its 142-meter rotor it offers outstanding efficiency. With to a swept area of nearly 16,000 square-meters and low O&M costs, the model offers the lowest LCoE of its class. For German tender wind projects the turbine offers clear economic benefits. VenSol plans installations of the direct-drive turbine with two different tower configurations: a steel tower allows a hub height of 129 meters, and a hybrid tower of 165 meters.

”With this framework agreement we ensure our access to one of the most efficient onshore wind turbines in the market,” says VenSol Director Christian Böhm. ”We are pleased to confirm that this enables us to operate our projects at the highest efficiency level. In addition the contract also allows smaller developers to benefit from its attractive conditions. The framework was consequently designed to meet the needs of these customers and their smaller wind projects. Due to its volume it offers outstanding conditions. Talks with these developers have confirmed a lively interest in Siemens Gamesa turbines but also some reservation regarding negotiations with such a large supplier. We are convinced that this framework agreement will encourage more customers to develop their projects with Siemens Gamesa technology.“

“This contract is an important signal for our presentation at HUSUM Wind, since this trade show plays a major role for us as an important forum of the German onshore wind market,” says Siemens Gamesa’s German sales head Gunnar Liehr. “This agreement demonstrates that our turbine model SWT-DD-142 leads the way as a highly competitive offer for inland sites.“

Siemens Gamesa’s German installed wind fleet over the last years consists of more than 1,650 onshore wind turbines with a combined rating of more than 2,1 gigawatts (as of the end of June 2017).
