Northern Denmark is set to become a hub for Vestas’ offshore wind turbine venture. After the summer break, work on installations of the V26-15MW prototype, which is expected to generate first power before the end of the year, will commence at the national test center in Østerild. Afterwards comes the next step in the town of Frederikshavn where three test versions of the new wind turbine are set to be installed.
European Energy has teamed up with Vestas for plans to install three V236 units at the project developer’s near-shore testing site off the Port of Frederikshavn. Pending the permit to set up the project, which received environmental approval last month, the partners aim to get started on the installations in the beginning of 2024 ahead of serial production of the turbines.
