Germany: Vestas wins 53 MW EPC order and 20-year service contract

A consortium of Holcim (Deutschland) GmbH and mdp GmbH places order for 16 V112-3.3 MW turbines for the Rethwisch wind power plant in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

The order comprises an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contract along with a 20-year full-scope service agreement (AOM 5000) and VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution. Wind turbine delivery and commissioning is planned to begin in the fourth quarter of 2016.

The Rethwisch wind power plant is Vestas’ first large-scale EPC project in Germany.  It leverages the company’s global EPC experience and satisfies an increasing market demand.  Vestas’ EPC offering is modular by nature. From an array of services, the customer can choose the scope that suits each individual project’s specific requirements.   

“We chose Vestas’ EPC offering because it enables us to focus our time and resources on our core competency – project development – and thereby increase our efficiency. This will be increasingly important going forward to compete in the new auction system”, says Hans Helmut Kutzeer, Managing Director of mdp GmbH. 

The V112-3.3 MW is part of Vestas’ successful 3 MW platform.  With five rotor variants, two nacelle configurations, multiple power modes, and 15 hub heights, the 3 MW platform enables an optimal turbine configuration for each unique wind site, maximising annual energy production (AEP) and optimising levelised cost of energy (LCOE).

“Winning the first full scope EPC contract in Germany is another important milestone for us. We are very pleased that Holcim (Deutschland) GmbH and mdp GmbH use the V112-3.3 MW turbine, one of our top performers for high-wind sites, for this project in Schleswig-Holstein. Combining the turbine order with the AOM 5000 service agreement, we look forward to working with our partners  to help them achieve maximum return on their investment over the lifetime of the wind power plant”, says Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Central Europe.
