Milestone for wind farm in the Bad Lauchstädt energy park: Terrawatt receives official approval and concludes supply contract with Vestas

With the completion of the approval process based on the Federal Immission Control Act (BImschG) by the district of Saalekreis at the beginning of this year, Terrawatt Planungsgesellschaft mbH was able to conclude the supply contract with the Danish wind turbine manufacturer VESTAS. Vestas will support the first production stage of the Bad Lauchstädt energy park with the delivery of eight state-of-the-art wind turbines.

Vestas will supply V162-6.2 wind turbines, each with a rated output of 6.2 MW, for the Bad Lauchstädt energy park. The turbines are part of Vesta's high MW class onshore wind turbine portfolio and are part of Vesta's most modern product platform (EnVentus). You achieve industry-leading energy production. Adapted to the local conditions, the systems are delivered with three different hub heights. Tubular steel towers with a height of 119 meters are used for two plants. The remaining six turbines with hub heights of 166 meters and 169 meters will be installed on locally manufactured concrete hybrid towers. Finally, the wind turbines are combined into a generation unit via a central wind farm controller.

“We are pleased to support this project as a technology partner. The complexity of the Bad Lauchstädt energy park makes the project an exciting challenge. Close coordination is required to ensure that the entire system consisting of wind turbines, electrolysis, grid control and other components functions properly. Our versatile interfaces will implement higher-level setpoint specifications in the planned setup and provide data for control. The selected wind turbines are therefore ideally suited for integration with green hydrogen production," explains Leander Rust, Technical Project Manager at Vestas.

Falk Zeuner, Managing Director of Terrawatt Planungsgesellschaft mbH, adds: "After we have now worked long and hard towards the necessary approval for our wind farm, we are pleased that we are now holding it in our hands. Ultimately, it was also an important prerequisite for finalizing the supply contract with Vestas. We are now in the process of coordinating the structural implementation with Vestas and thereby avoiding further delays in the project, which could increase costs.”

The start of construction for the eight wind turbines and thus the first stage of the production of green hydrogen in the Bad Lauchstädt energy park is planned for the first half of this year and should ideally be completed by the end of 2023.
