Vestas wins 99 MW order and service contract in China


Vestas has secured a 99 MW order for two projects in Jiangsu Province in China.
Both projects will feature a mixed site configuration consisting of V155-3.3 MW and V110-2.2 MW turbines.

The order includes a supply of 16 V155-3.3 MW and 21 V110-2.2 MW turbines as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement.

This is the second order of V155-3.3 MW turbines, Vestas’ latest 4 MW platform variant designed for low-wind conditions since its introduction in China in June 2019. The order also features Vestas’ first 20-year service agreement in China, a milestone that showcases how Vestas, by leveraging its industry-leading service capabilities, can optimize life-time performance and improve business case certainty for its customers in the world’s largest wind market.

“The order is significant in two ways, as it demonstrates the V155-3.3 MW turbine’s suitability for China’s low wind market and marks our Chinese customer’s increasing trust in Vestas’ long-term service capabilities and commitment,” said Thomas Keller, president of Vestas China. “I believe with the shift of attention to the entire lifecycle of wind farms, more of our Chinese customers will partner with us on long-term service contracts.”

The order takes Vestas’ announced order intake in China to about 550 MW in the first quarter of 2020.

Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2020, while commissioning is planned for the third quarter in the same year.

Customer’s name and project’s name are undisclosed under customer’s request.
