The order includes supply, installation and commissioning of the turbines, a VestasOnline® Business SCADA system, as well as a seven-year service agreement including the Active Output Management package ‘AOM 4000’.

The AOM 4000 is a full-scope service contract, consisting of scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and consumables, which offers solid risk management for customers, who want an availability guarantee measured against an agreed threshold.

Delivery of the turbines is scheduled to start during the second quarter of 2011 and the project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

“We consider that Vestas has the proven technology able to meet the requirements of the Aksu project and that they are the wind turbine supplier and service provider which best can meet our needs,” said Fahrettin Amir Arman, an Ayen board member.

“We are currently diversifying the energy portfolio of our company, and we see wind energy as a competitive, sustainable and complementary energy source,” he continued. “This 72 MW project, which will be the largest wind power plant we have installed so far, is an important step towards the diversification of our energy investments. We look forward to working together with Vestas, the global wind technology leader, on this project.”

The order has been placed by Aksu Temiz Enerji Elektrik Üretim Sanayi ve Ticaret Anonim Şirketi, a subsidiary of Ayen Energy, which in the past has installed hydroelectric power plants and a natural gas plant.

In addition, Ayen Energy has already built one wind power plant, and is currently in the process of constructing two others. When they are complete, the three facilities will have a combined capacity of 80 MW.

“We are extremely pleased that Ayen Energy has selected Vestas as preferred supplier for their largest wind investment, the Aksu project,” said Ali Neyzi, Vice President of Vestas Türkiye. “Having been selected on the grounds of our solid experience, global track record and technological leadership, we hope that this project will lay the foundations for a long-lasting collaboration between the two companies.”
