Vestas, the global leader for wind energy solutions, just closed two massive landmark deals. The first one for the Baltic Power project in Poland and the second one for the He Dreiht project, located in the German waters of the North Sea.
For the Baltic power project, Vestas has secured a firm order for 1,140 MW in offshore wind capacity. This order includes the supply, installation, and commissioning of 76 V236-15.0 MW wind turbines, marking a significant step toward powering Poland’s energy transition. Building on this impressive momentum, Vestas has also secured a 960 MW firm order for the German offshore wind project, where Vestas will install 64 of his flagship offshore wind turbine as well.
The V236-15.0 MW, the first-ever 15 MW turbine introduced to the market in February 2021, represents a significant advancement in turbine technology. The prototype successfully produced its first kWh of power in December 2022 and is currently undergoing extensive testing to ensure reliability before full type certification. Vestas is gearing up for commercial projects, with serial production set for 2024. The product is a remarkable piece of technology and one single Vestas V236 can supply up to 20,000 households.
These recent successes underscore Vestas’ position as a leader in sustainable energy solutions and its dedication to supporting the global transition to clean, renewable energy sources. With these two significant orders, Vestas is set to play a pivotal role in powering Poland and Germany with clean, green energy for years to come.
