Vestas has secured an order from the leading German wind power plant developer juwi Wind totalling 36 MW. The order consists of 12 V112-3.0MW turbines and will be deployed at three different projects in Germany.
The contract comprises supply, installation and commissioning of the turbines, along with a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution, as well as a 15-year full-scope service agreement (AOM 4000).
Vestas and juwi signed a framework agreement for 52 turbines in 2012 and today’s order thus continues the positive cooperation between the two partners.
“We are proud to continue our cooperation with juwi, one of the leading developers in the German market. The order shows juwi’s trust in our products and organisation. As a business partner we strive to bring leading technology as well as flawless project execution to maximise business case certainty for juwi as well as for their customers,” states Hans Vestergaard, Senior Vice President, Sales, Vestas Central Europe.
The 12 turbines will be deployed at three different projects in Germany in Göllheim, Niederhausen an der Appel and Alsenz during the summer of 2014.

The high quality wind turbines from Vestas offer our customers a both reliable and climate friendly electricity production, and we hope to see utilities, municipalities and energy co-operatives work with us in the future to contribute to the energy turnaround,” says juwi Wind founder and executive Matthias Willenbacher.
