PNE strengthens ties with Vestas

German wind farm developer PNE Wind and wind turbine supplier Vestas have agreed to an exclusive cooperation agreement for offshore wind farms in the North Sea. The two companies have agreed that PNE's Gode Wind I and III projects will be developed in partnership with Vestas. The two entities have also been associated for the Gode Wind II offshore wind farm.

The Gode Wind I project will see up to 77 offshore wind turbines installed, supplied by Vestas. PNE will be responsible for the other components, including the transformer station, foundations and subsea cabling. In addition, PNE will undertake the wind farm design, the financing strategy and the involvement of additional project partners.
Gode Wind III is still in an early phase of development. It is expected that the project will feature approximately 15 wind turbines. It is hoped that Gode Wind III could serve as the pilot project for Vestas' 6 MW offshore wind turbine currently under development.

The company plans to construct Gode Wind II in 2012-2013, with 84 Vestas V112-3.0 MW wind turbines. In parallel, the two other Gode Wind projects are to be developed further in such time as to allow their follow-on construction.

PNE recently shared that it has made considerable progress on the way to constructing the offshore wind farm Gode Wind II. The documentation required for the binding agreement to the grid connection has been submitted to the transmission grid operator TenneT. This means that PNE has fulfilled all four criteria in the German Federal Network Agency's position paper on the maintenance of the unconditional grid connection agreement. This progress in the project’s development has created the prerequisite for being able to begin the construction of the Gode Wind II project in 2012 as planned.

Gode Wind I has already been approved by the relevant German regulatory bodies.
