The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 10-year service agreement, designed to ensure optimized performance for the lifetime of the project. Turbine delivery will begin in the second quarter of 2020 with commissioning scheduled for the third quarter of 2020. The project and customer are undisclosed.
- U.S.: Vestas has received an order for 149 MW of turbines, consisting of 12 V110-2.0 MW turbines and 57 V120-2.2 MW turbines for a wind project in the U.S. The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a multi-year service agreement, designed to ensure optimized performance for the lifetime of the project. Turbine delivery will begin in the first quarter of 2020 with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020. The project and customer are undisclosed.
- China: Vestas has received a 55 MW order in China that includes supply of 25 V120-2.2 MW as well as a 2-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement. Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2020, while commissioning is planned for the third quarter in the same year. Customer and project names are undisclosed at the customer’s request.
- Italy: PLT Engineering has placed a 37 MW order for two projects in Italy that showcase the versatility of Vestas’ 2 MW and 4 MW platforms. Both projects, located in Calabria and Basilicata, will feature a mixed site configuration of both V110–2.0 MW and V136–4.2 MW wind turbines to optimize energy production. The order includes supply and installation of the turbines as well as an Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement for the next 15 years. The energy produced by both wind parks will be commercialized through a PPA contract with PLT Puregreen for the next 12 years. Since installing its first turbine in Italy in 1991, Vestas has led the country’s wind industry with more than 4.3 GW capacity installed, being the main contributor to the country’s expansion of wind energy with a 40 percent market share. Turbine delivery is planned for the second half of 2020, while commissioning is expected by the fourth quarter 2020.
- Russia: Vestas has been awarded an order for 252 MW for three wind energy projects in Russia from WEDF (Wind Energy Development Fund), a joint investment fund created on a parity basis by PJSC Fortum and JSC RUSNANO. Located in the Kalmykiya and the Rostov region, the projects will comprise 60 V126-4.2 MW wind turbines. With this fourth order from its framework agreement with RUSNANO and Fortum to supply wind-energy solutions in Russia, Vestas marks another key milestone in further strengthening the country’s renewable energy sector. The projects will increase Vestas’ footprint in the country to a total capacity of almost 600 MW, underlining the company’s leading position in the market. The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 15-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service agreement. The projects will feature a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution to lower turbine downtime and optimize the energy output. Turbine delivery is scheduled for the third quarter of 2020, while energy production is expected to start during the fourth quarter of 2020.
- Denmark: Vestas has secured a 36 MW repowering order for the final phase of the 94 MW Overgaard 1 wind park in Randers Municipality in Denmark. The order is derived from the energy-neutral auction in November 2019 in Denmark, and it is placed by SE Blue Renewables, a joint venture between the Danish energy company Norlys and Denmark’s largest pension company, PFA Pension. The firm order includes supply, installation, and commissioning of 10 V126-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimized Mode as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. The order comes six months after Vestas announced the first phase of the project. Once completed, the repowered wind park will almost quadruple the current site’s energy production, underlining the strong business case in replacing older turbines with newer and more efficient variants. Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2021, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of 2021.
- South Korea: Vestas has secured its first V136-4.2 MW order in South Korea for the Cheongsong Myeonbong Mt Wind Power project with EPC contractor Kumho Industrial Co., Ltd. The 42-MW order consists of 10 V136-4.2 MW wind turbines at a hub height of 112 meters as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement, designed to maximize uptime and ensure optimized performance of the project. To optimize operation in the site’s specific wind conditions, the turbines will feature Vestas’ High Wind Operation (HWO), an intelligent control option that allows the turbines to continue operating beyond standard cut-out wind speeds. The result is improved output stability, energy production, and reliability, helping the project to deliver the maximum return on investment for the customer. Each turbine will be equipped with a full-scale converter, enhancing the wind park’s compliance with grid requirements. The Cheongsong Myeonbong Mt Wind Power project is in Cheongsong county, North Gyeongsang Province. Turbine installation is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2021.
