“We are proud to continue our valued partnership with ERG on the Laszki wind project and will utilize our strong service capabilities and extensive market experience in Poland to maximize our customer’s return on investment”, says Nils de Baar, president of Vestas Northern & Central Europe. “This order once again demonstrates that Vestas is a reliable partner in auctions, delivering competitive wind energy solutions."
The project will feature a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and thus optimising the energy output. The contract further includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a long-term Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
Deliveries are expected to begin in the first half of 2021, while commissioning is planned for the second half of 2021.
Vestas has also secured an order from Green Investment Group Limited, a specialist developer, sponsor and investor and part of the Macquarie Group for the 79.8 MW wind project in Norway.
Vestas has developed a customized solution for the project with 19 V150-4.2 MW turbines that combines Vestas’ largest rotor in Norway with a 25-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service agreement and the Vestas Anti-Icing System, which efficiently minimizes ice formation on blades. Being an optimized fit for the site’s wind and climate conditions, the solution will maximize the projects’s power production.
Green Investment Group Limited has entered into a power purchase agreement (PPA) which will provide revenue certainty for the project and deliver power to local industry.
Two Nordic companies have also been selected to complete the main civil and overhead lines works, including Risa AS. Risa has been chosen to carry out all groundwork on the project. Construction of the wind farm will support 80-100 jobs.
The firm order includes supply, installation and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2021, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of 2021.
