Gamesa to install 4.5 MW turbines at Debstedt wind farm in Germany

Published 19 February 2016

Gamesa, a Spanish wind power company has entered into a contract with Energiekontor, a German wind power company to repower Debstedt wind farm with 4.5 MW turbines.

Under the terms of the contract, the Spanish wind power company will repower Debstedt wind farm located in the state of Lower Saxony near Bremerhaven, in north-west Germany with three G128- 4.5 MW turbines.

Gamesa will also operate and maintain the facility for the next 18 years.

With the installation of the new turbines the total power output will go up to 13.5 MW.

Debstedt wind farm has been in operation since 1998 and is equipped with 11 1MW capacity turbines.

By adding these three new 4.5 MW turbines, the annual energy output could be doubled.

Gamesa says that it will use advanced 4.5 MW turbines which will produce more energy using half as many turbines.

Gamesa will deliver these turbines beginning in August. The installation of these turbines at the facility will begin in December.

Gamesa Germany head of sales, Martin G. Hake said: "his contract marks a milestone in our strategy for Northern Europe as it is the first order to supply the G128-4.5 MW in such a market as Germany, while also evidencing the credibility Gamesa products have earned in the eyes of customers."

Energiekontor management board member, Torben Moeller said: "For Energiekontor's repowering strategy it is essential to use a state-of-the-art technology to install the maximum power into a plot with the lowest impact on the environment.

"A reduction from 8 to 3 turbines was only possible with a Multi-MW-WTG like the G128-4.5 MW."
