MHI Vestas will be busy at Lindø. The company has landed a record order from DONG Energy to supply 56 V164-8.0 MW wind turbines to be installed in the wind farm Borkum Riffgrund 2. The turbines are the largest wind turbines in German waters.

It is the third time that DONG Energy book V164-8.0 MW offshore wind turbines at MHI Vestas, which is a joint venture between Vestas and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. The previous orders have been turbines for Burbo Bank Extension (258 MW) and Walney Extension (330 MW).

In addition to the supply of turbines MHI Vestas will be responsible for the maintenance of the wind turbines in a 5-year period.

The order was previously announced, but required an updated license from Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie, that it was feasible to construct 8MW wind turbines in the wind farm. The request was granted on Friday.
