Vestas secures a 960 MW firm order of V236-15.0 MW wind turbines for EnBW’s He Dreiht offshore wind project

Vestas has secured a 960 MW firm order for the flagship offshore wind turbine V236-15.0 MW. The order includes 64 V236-15.0 MW wind turbines for the He Dreiht project located in the German waters of the North Sea. Vestas will also deliver a five-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement followed by a long-term Operational Support Agreement.

“We are delighted to announce this firm order for our offshore wind turbine V236-15.0 MW and are honoured to deliver this important milestone on Germany’s ambitious wind energy targets together with our partner EnBW,” says Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe. “I am very proud of our team, which has worked with great diligence and commitment on our flagship wind turbine over several years. Our thanks go to EnBW for their confidence in our technology and the close cooperation since the beginning of the planning, and I am looking forward to seeing the V236-15.0 MW standing in the German North Sea soon.”

"Since our pioneer wind farm Baltic 1 more than ten years ago, the technical performance of the turbines have increased sixfold. We will use Vestas' modern and cost-efficient turbine technology which will enable us to realise He Dreiht without subsidies," says Jörn Däinghaus, project director of EnBW He Dreiht. "We look forward to working with Vestas - a partner in whom we have great confidence."

The project has a grid connection capacity of 900 MW and an excess capacity of 60 MW in order to use the connection capacity as efficiently as possible, even when production is lower.

Installation is planned to begin in the second quarter of 2025, and commissioning is scheduled for the fourth quarter of the same year.

The V236-15.0 MW was the first ever 15 MW turbine to be introduced to the market in February 2021 and the installation of the prototype turbine was completed in December 2022 where the turbine also successfully produced its first kWh of power. The prototype is currently undergoing an extensive test and verification programme to ensure reliability before full type certification. Across the entire Vestas value chain, we are getting ready to deliver on commercial projects with serial production scheduled for 2024.
