GreenLab Skive project : Vestas wins turbine contract from Eurowind Energy
Danish renewable energy developer Eurowind Energy has awarded a contract to Vestas for the supply of 54MW turbines for the GreenLab Skive project in Denmark.
Apart from the supply, installation, and commissioning of the wind turbines, the Danish wind turbine manufacturer will provide its VestasOnline Business SCADA solution for reducing turbine downtime for optimizing the energy output.
Vestas is said to have developed a site-specific wind energy solution to obtain maximum power production from the GreenLab Skive project. This is expected to be achieved by the installation of one V126-3.45 MW turbine delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode and a dozen V136-4.2 MW turbines, combined with towers on different hub heights.
The contract includes a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
The GreenLab Skive project, which is located in Mid Jutland, Denmark is planned to be made into a sustainable energy park and research facility that generates renewable energy from various sources like wind, solar, and biogas.
To date, Vestas has installed more than 3.7GW of wind turbines for Eurowind Energy.
Jens Rasmussen – CEO of Eurowind Energy said: “We are happy to execute this landmark project in Denmark together with Vestas and thus strengthening our cooperation with Vestas even further.
“This hybrid project – with wind, solar and storage battery – will supply green power directly to a 12 MW hydrogen/E-methanol production facility making the green transition really happening through sector coupling.”
Vestas is expected to begin deliveries and commissioning of the wind turbines in Q2 2022.
Nils de Baar – President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe said: “We are proud to deliver our technology to a lighthouse project like GreenLab, which works to transform the way green energy is produced, converted, stored and put to use. GreenLab truly marks a significant step in making the energy transition come true.
“At the same time, we look forward to implementing yet another wind project with Eurowind Energy A/S and utilising the flexible 4 MW platform technology for the benefit of our valued customer”.
