The order includes supply, delivery, and commissioning of the turbines. Upon completion, Vestas will service the turbines under a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement designed to ensure optimised performance of the assets.
Jens Kück, Senior Vice President Sales Onshore for Northern and Central Europe at Vestas, says:
“We are very pleased to announce the first V172-7.2 MW order for Vestas which marks the next milestone for our modular platform architecture. Our thanks go to Uhl Windkraft and the Comital House of Koenigsegg-Aulendorf for the trust in us and our technology. The V172-7.2 MW offers a great business case, especially in a low-wind environment such as in Baden-Württemberg and is an important contribution to Germany’s energy transition.”
The V172-7.2 MW is designed for optimised energy production in low to medium average wind conditions. The design takes into account the full value chain with modular design, improved transportability of the nacelle unit, as well as the flexibility to service and upgrade over the turbine’s operational lifetime.
The project site is located in Hoßkirch, 40km north of Friedrichshafen. Turbine delivery will begin in the second quarter of 2025 with commissioning scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2025.
