Vestas has received a 34 MW order for the Haramsfjellet wind project on the island of Haramsøya in western Norway, based on the supply of eight V136-4.2 MW turbines and a long-term service contract to optimise energy production for the lifetime of the project in a high wind location.

The company’s solution for the site incorporates a robust design for challenging wind sites with a turbine model that is well-suited for the climatic conditions commonly found on Norway’s western coastline. The order was placed by Finnish-based Taaleri Energia investing in the project via their SolarWind II fund. The project will have an annual production of about 112 GWh, generating enough electricity to supply around 7,000 Norwegian households.

“After 21 years of development of the Haram wind farm project we are delighted to finally build the project” said Olav Rommetveit,CEO of Zephyr. “Great cooperation with Taaleri, Vestas and other suppliers, consultants and local landowners has made this possible. We are strongly committed in the role as both construction and asset manager of the project and we look forward to bring the project through construction and operation in order to assure a successful project”.

Taaleri Energia’s Managing Director, Kai Rintala, added the investment in Norwegian wind is underpinned by the availability of commercial offtake contracts in one of the world’s most liquid power markets.

The contract includes the supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 27-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. The project will also feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution to lower turbine downtime and optimise the energy output.

Turbine delivery is scheduled for the second quarter of 2020, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of 2020.
