MHI Vestas V164 to power Deutsche Bucht

DENMARK: MHI Vestas has been named as the preferred supplier for the 252MW Deutsche Bucht offshore project in the German North Sea.

MHI Vestas V164-8.0MW turbines will be backed up by 15-year service deal at Deutsche Bucht

The project owner, British Wind Energy, a subsidiary of the Windreich group, chose the V164-8MW turbine after a competitive tendering process. The deal includes a 15-year full-scope service package.

"Being nominated for our second project in Germany underlines the strength of the V164-8MW as a competitive turbine for the market, where distance from the coast and deeper water demands a larger and more powerful machine," said MHI Vestas CEO Jens Tommerup.

Installation at the Deutsche Bucht project, located nearly 100 kilometres from shore, is scheduled to start in 2019.
