Siemens Gamesa has signed an order with Eurowind Energy for Thorup-Sletten, the largest onshore wind farm in Denmark to date. The 18 onshore turbines will have a total capacity of 77 MW.
Installation of the Thorup-Sletten wind farm, west of the Aggersund bridge in northwestern Jutland, will start in October 2019. Siemens Gamesa will also be responsible for service and maintenance of the wind farm for 20 years through a long-term service programme tailored for Eurowind Energy.
Jens Rasmussen, CEO for Eurowind Energy, said: “We are proud of being the developer behind the largest onshore project in Denmark. This is yet another proof that onshore wind should continue to be an important part of the energy mix to keep Denmark at the forefront when it comes to wind energy. We have chosen Siemens Gamesa because we looked around in the market to find a turbine that is both a great match for these very windy conditions, and can deliver high product quality and a highly competitive price. The upgrade of the turbine from 3.6 to 4.3 MW, together with the 130 m rotor was important to get the lowest cost per kWh produced.”
