Vestas will also provide a long term 30-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement which will provide maximum security for the Grönhult project throughout its lifetime by optimising park performance and limiting downtime.
The Grönhult project was acquired by TRIG from Vattenfall in February 2021, and is ready-to-build. The project is located in the Gislaved region in southwest Sweden, and will provide clean, sustainable wind power for over 20,000 Swedish households.
“The V162-5.6 MW is an optimal turbine for the Grönhult project’s wind speeds and site specifications, and we’re delighted to be partnering with The Renewables Infrastructure Group for the delivery and construction of our first project together in Sweden” said Juan Furones, Vice President, Sales North & West, Vestas Northern & Central Europe. “The EnVentus platform continues to increase its footprint into the marketand we’re pleased TRIG has entrusted Vestas with this ready-to-build project.”
Vestas has currently installed over 5 GW capacity of wind turbines in Sweden,
First turbines will be delivered to the project in the second quarter of 2022, with the project expected to become operational in the fourth quarter of 2022.
