Vestas secures 46 MW order in South Korea with the highest tubular steel tower in the country

The project is co-owned with E1 Corporation and will be constructed by Daewoo E&C, to be located in Yeongwol-gun, Gangwon-do, in South Korea. The site is located in hilly terrain, meaning that Vestas will have to deliver a customised solution with site-specific towers that meet the challenging transportation requirements while also maximising annual energy production. At 132 metres in height, the project will feature the tallest hubs for wind turbines installed with a tubular steel tower in South Korea.

The order includes eleven Vestas V136-4.2 MW wind turbines, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement for the wind farm, providing a time-based availability guarantee to ensure optimised performance and long-term business case certainty for the customer.

“We remain committed to contributing to South Korea’s 2050 carbon neutrality goal” said Purvin Patel, President and CEO of Vestas Asia Pacific. “It is encouraging to see South Korea’s ambitions to increase the deployment of renewable energy and this project is an important step towards that goal”.

Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2022, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of the same year.
