MHI Vestas announces 450 MW order

German authorities have approved a new building permit for Dong Energy concerning a German offshore wind farm, meaning MHI Vestas can now announce its biggest order to date.

Dong Energy has been granted permission to construct Borkum Riffgrund 2 with 8 MW wind turbines from MHI Vestas. The Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) updated the building permit originally issued in December 2011, so that the energy company can now construct the farm with larger wind turbines. The construction of the approximately 450 MW offshore wind farm can now continue as planned.

The announcement comes as no suprise. Last year, the energy company received an commitment from BSH, known as a Zusicherung, to replace the original planning permission to build 97 wind turbines between 36.6 MW with fewer 8 MW wind turbines. Practically speaking, the commitment was already legally binding, but the final approval is what prompted MHI Vestas to announce the order.
