The three projects are called Zniny Damaslawek, Pniewy, and Miescisko. The order from Eurowind Energy A/S includes the supply and installation of Vestas turbines at the projects. The 70 MW in capacity adds to the approximately 140 MW at eight projects Eurowind Energy has already placed in orders with Vestas in the last two years in Poland.
“Adding to our already outstanding collaboration with Eurowind Energy, these three orders in Poland are an excellent endorsement of the range of turbine solutions we can provide customers” said Richard Baylis, VP Sales East and Business Development at Vestas Northern & Central Europe. “Vestas’ V100-2.0 MW turbine is a good fit with the projects some of the leading developers are installing in Poland, and we’re delighted to be selected to deliver turbines for the Zniny Damaslawek, Pniewy, and Miescisko projects in 2022”.
Jens Rasmussen, CEO of Eurowind Energy, added that Poland is one of the company’s main markets and will continue to be so in the foreseeable future.
“We have a sizeable development pipeline in Poland and we look forward to develop, construct and operate those wind and solar farms in the years to come” said Mr Rasmussen.
At Zniny Damaslawek, Vestas will supply and install 15 V100-2.0 MW turbines and an additional 12 V100-2.0 MW turbines in 2.2 MW operating mode, for a total project size of 56 MW. The 8 MW Pniewy project will see Vestas supply and install 4 V100-2.0 MW turbines. At Miescisko, which will stand at a capacity of 6 MW, Vestas will supply and install 3 V100-2.0 MW turbines.
In addition to supply and installation, Vestas will provide service for all three projects through long-term 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreements, providing power performance certainty and Vestas’ industry-leading service expertise throughout the lifetime of the projects.
Turbines will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2022, with commissioning expected by the first quarter of 2023.
In other news, Vestas recently secured a 50 MW order with German developer and operator of renewable energy projects, wpd AG, for three projects - Chuangwei 2, Leadway 2 and Hsinyuan wind farms in Taiwan.
The Hsinyuan wind farm includes six V136-4.2 MW turbines with 112 metre towers, featuring the largest onshore turbine rotors in Taiwan, which will maximise energy production for the site’s medium wind conditions. Chuangwei 2 and Leadway 2 wind farms will be installed with four and two V117-4.2 MW turbines with 91.5m towers, respectively.
With this order, Vestas’ total onshore order intake in Taiwan will exceed more than 330 MW of which more than 110 MW have been done in collaboration with wdp.
The order includes a long-term Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement for the wind farms, to ensure optimised performance and long-term business case certainty for the customer.
Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2022, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of the same year.
