Vestas has been awarded a contract for a 24.6MW community wind farm in Germany.

The Danish company is providing eight turbines with a capacity of 3.3MW each for the Kirchberg Windpark located in Baden Wurttemberg.

The project is expected to generate enough energy to cover the electricity needs of more than 10,000 German households.

The delivery is scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2016 and commissioning is expected to be completed in the second quarter of the same year.

Ralf Stier and Georg Persigehl, Managing Directors of the Kirchberg Windpark: “Our wind energy project is a wonderful example of a privately owned wind farm. With more than 90% of the capital being provided by people from the region, no privately-owned wind farm in southern Germany has as large a citizen share as this great project.”
