RWE Orders 15 MW Nordseecluster Offshore Wind Turbines at Vestas

Vestas has now revealed the name of the project and the client for a conditional contract the company signed in May as an unconditional order came in from RWE for the first phase of its 1.6 GW Nordseecluster offshore wind development in Germany.

The Denmark-based wind turbine OEM has received a firm order for 44 of its V236-15.0 MW offshore wind turbines for the 660 MW Nordseecluster A, the first phase of RWE’s two-phased Nordseecluster project in Germany.

Back in February 2023, RWE selected Vestas as the preferred supplier for Nordseecluster and signed the conditional contract for the two phases on 17 May 2024.

The now-signed order for the 660 MW Nordseecluster A includes supply, installation, and commissioning of the 15 MW wind turbines, as well as a five-year service agreement followed by an operational support agreement.

Vestas will deliver the wind turbines in 2026 and Nordseecluster A is expected to be completed by the end of the same year with the 660 MW offshore wind farm scheduled to be in operation by the beginning of 2027.

Offshore construction is scheduled to commence next year.

RWE made the final investment decision for the Nordseecluster project in the German North Sea at the end of May 2024 and has already signed several key supplier contracts.
