Vestas has secured a conditional agreement to supply 112 V236-15.0 MW wind turbines for Vattenfall's and BASF's Nordlicht 1 and 2 offshore wind projects, as already communicated in Vestas' Company Announcement 10/2024 of 13 June 2024. Within the scope of the contract is furthermore a 5-year service and warranty agreement followed by an operational support agreement until year 30. The companies are also underlining their ambitions to reduce their CO2e emissions along the entire value chain.

The top sections of 56 out of 112 towers will be made with low-emission steel, accounting for 24% of the mass of the heavy steel plates used for the wind farm area and leading to a 16% reduction in the towers' overall carbon footprint. The low-emission steel is fabricated using 100% steel scrap melted in an electric arc furnace powered by 100% wind energy, reducing the carbon footprint by 66% compared to heavy steel plates made via a conventional steelmaking route.
