Wind Energy – He Dreiht
Vestas has secured a conditional order agreement to supply 64 V235-15.0 MW wind turbines for EnBW’s 900 MW He Dreiht offshore wind project in 2025.
In addition, Vestas will deliver a multi-year solution to service the wind project when operational.
With a swept area of 43,742 m2 and a capacity factor of over 60 percent from the 115.5m blades, the V236-15.0 MW turbine will deliver industry-leading park performance for EnBW at He Dreiht. Depending on site-specific conditions a single V236-15.0 MW turbine can produce 80 GWh per year, enough to power around 20,000 European households.
“Only with state-of-the-art and cost-efficient technology we can realise offshore projects like He Dreiht without subsidies. The turbines from Vestas make a significant contribution to this. Offshore is not only technically demanding, but also requires solid forward-looking forecasts, knowledge of the market and the willingness take entrepreneurial risks before a final investment decision has been made. As one of the pioneers in German offshore history, we would like to use He Dreiht to further contribute to making offshore wind energy available for the German market,” says Michael Class, Head of Generation Portfolio Development at EnBW.
Vestas has also entered a conditional agreement with Cadeler, a leading supplier within offshore wind installation services, for the transportation and installation of the turbines for the He Dreiht project.
Installation is planned to begin in the second quarter of 2025, with full park commissioning anticipated for the fourth quarter of the same year.
