Vestas to repower 63MW in Germany

Vestas has won a 63MW order to equip what it says is one of the biggest repowering projects in the German onshore wind sector.

The Danish group will supply 19 V112-3.3 MW machines to KGE Windpark Schipkau Nord for the repowering project in Brandenburg, to be carried out by long-time Vestas customer Ventotec.

The deal includes a 15-year service agreement and the option to add a further eight turbines.

Turbine delivery will begin in the second half of this year with commissioning expected in the first quarter of 2015.
