The turbine selection is aimed at optimising performance and lowering the cost of energy for the site’s specific wind conditions and is the first order in Sweden featuring the V150-4.2 MW turbines. Eolus and Vestas have collaborated on projects amounting to almost 900 MW in Sweden, including the Bäckhammar project, while Vestas has installed more than 3.3 GW of wind turbines in the country in total.

“Eolus is pleased to be the first developer in Sweden to place an order for the V150-4.2 MW turbine” said Eolus CEO Per Witalisson. “We appreciate Vestas’ continuous strive to develop and optimise turbines that meet site specific requirements. That is the foundation of our long-time relationship”.

Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe, added that after more than a decade of successfully partnering with Eolus, the company continues to build on its strong relationship and that the Bäckhammar project employs Vestas’ two largest rotors to maximise production and reduce the cost of energy, underlining the 4 MW platform’s flexibility and adaptability.

The 4 MW platform was introduced in 2010 and extended in 2017 with three new turbines, including the V136-4.2 MW and V150-4.2 MW variants. Today, almost 20 GW of 4 MW platform turbines have been installed globally.

The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. The project will feature VestasOnline Business SCADA solution to lower turbine downtime and optimise the energy output. Deliveries and project completion are scheduled for 2020.
