Bürgerwindpark Reußenköge GmbH & Co. KG has placed an order for 12 V112-3.45 MW turbines for the expansion of a citizen-owned wind park in Schleswig-Holstein.
With this order, the wind park will have a total installed capacity of 210 MW with the possibility of a further expansion up to 300 MW in the coming years, making it one of the world’s largest citizen-owned wind projects.

We started this journey in 1989 with our first turbine and we plan to expand this citizen wind partk to up to 300 MW in the coming years. With the 12 new turbines, Vestas will have provided 63 V112-turbines for this wind project”, states Dirk Ketelsen, Managing Director Bürgerwindpark Reußenköge GmbH & Co. KG.
