Vestas has received a 40 MW order from Eurowind Energy A/S three wind farms in Poland, developed through Eurowind Energy’s joint venture in Poland, E&W project.
The three projects are located in the Wagrowiec, Oborniki and Wyrzysk provinces in the north-western part of the country, the projects will consist of V100-2.0 MW wind turbines combined with 120 metre towers and long-term service contracts, maximising power production while at the same time offering competitive levelised cost of energy.
Earlier this quarter, Vestas announced it has secured more than 1.5 GW of wind projects in Poland since the country introduced its auction system in 2018. This new order further consolidates Vestas' market leadership in the Polish renewable energy sector and builds on an installed base of more than 2.2 GW. Vestas has been operating in Poland since 2002 and employs around 400 people in the country.
“We are happy to place this order for a second bundle of projects that won the 2019 renewable auction in Poland” said Jens Rasmussen, CEO of Eurowind Energy. “Our pipeline of projects in Poland are substantial and we expect to place further orders in the near future. Vestas was a natural choice for our pipeline due to the reliability of the technology”.
The contracts further include supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreements for the three wind farms. The projects will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and thus optimising the energy output.
Deliveries are planned for the third quarter of 2021.
In other news, Vestas has received a 184 MW order of V120-2.2 MW and V110-2.2 MW wind turbines in the USA, which takes Vestas’ order intake in 2020 across the 10 GW mark before entering the fourth quarter.
The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a multi-year service agreement. Turbine delivery is scheduled to begin the second quarter of 2021, with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2021.
