Vestas secures order for wind project to support green hydrogen production
Vestas has received a 50 MW order from Energiepark Bad Lauchstädt GmbH to power the Bad Lauchstädt TerraWatt project in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.
The order includes the supply, installation, and commissioning of eight V162-6.2 MW turbines at a hub height of 169m, as well as a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement designed to ensure optimised performance of the asset.
Energiepark Bad Lauchstädt will use wind energy to produce green hydrogen at an industrial scale, thanks to a large electrolysis plant of up to 30 MW close to the project site.
“Power-to-x is a crucial technology on the journey towards decarbonisation and indirect electrification of ‘hard-to-abate’ sectors like heavy transport and chemical industries. By generating electricity from renewable and clean energy sources our technology provides the basis for connecting green electricity and hydrogen at an industrial scale,” says Jan Hagen.
