The new low-wind generating turbine technology is an important contribution both globally and to Germany’s energy transition says Jens Kück, SVP at Vestas

Vestas is a global ally in the energy sector with a primary focus on sustainable energy, in particular, wind power—as its name suggests. It designs, builds, instals and maintains a wealth of energy infrastructure, and with over 169 GW of wind turbines in 88 countries, it has installed more wind power than anyone else.


The company is now harnessing data to further drive its performance in the wind energy arena with unparalleled solutions and equally crucial insights to equip its expert team of over 29,000 strong with industry professionals.


Wind projects boosting renewable energy uptake

Developer Uhl Windkraft has become the first to order Vestas’ new V172-7.2 MW wind turbine, the latest addition to Vestas’  EnVentus Platform. Six wind turbines will be supplied to the Hoßkirch wind project, which is in cooperation with the Comital House of Koenigsegg-Aulendorf.

Alongside the supply, delivery, and commissioning of the turbines, Vestas will service the turbines under a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement designed to ensure optimised performance of the assets.


“We are very pleased to announce the first V172-7.2 MW order for Vestas which marks the next milestone for our modular platform architecture,” says Jens Kück, Senior Vice President Sales Onshore for Northern and Central Europe at Vestas. Kück has been at Vestas for over eight years, before which he was a Consultant for Boston Consulting Group.


“Our thanks go to Uhl Windkraft and the Comital House of Koenigsegg-Aulendorf for the trust in us and our technology. The V172-7.2 MW offers a great business case, especially in a low-wind environment such as in Baden-Württemberg and is an important contribution to Germany’s energy transition.”


The V172-7.2 MW is designed for optimised energy production in low to medium average wind conditions. The build of the turbine takes into account the full value chain with modular design, improved transportability and increased flexibility to service and upgrade over the turbine’s operational lifetime.
