Following the success of Vestas and Fortum Energy in Russia’s first wind energy auction, the two companies have entered into an agreement, engaging Vestas to supply its 4 MW platform for wind energy projects in Russia, the world’s fourth-largest electricity market. With this, the companies hope to lead the expansion of wind energy in Russia. They will work with local partners to establish a strong local manufacturing and supply chain capacity; and Vestas will also provide its considerable experience to build up and establish high standards for the relatively young Russian renewables sector.

Scaling Heights: Vestas Repowers One Of Europe’s Highest-Located Wind Parks

Vestas is to repower one of Europe’s highest-located wind parks with a customised solution at the Tauernwindpark. Located in Niedere Tauern mountain massif in Styria, Austria, the Tauernwindpark is one of the highest-located wind parks in Europe, operating 1,900 meters above sea-level. ImWind, Tauernwindpark’s owner, was looking to repower the 22.75 MW wind park, which currently consists of 13 V66-1750 kW wind turbines. A wind power project in such an environment is demanding, not only with regard to turbulence caused by the mountains but also with regard to the remote site’s logistical challenges as well.
