This order is an extension of the Lappfjärd project, which was completed in the fourth quarter of 2022 and features 31 wind turbines of the same type, marking the first time Vestas deployed the V162-6.2 MW variant.
“After the successful and timely completion of wind farm Lappfjärd with 31 EnVentus turbines in 2022, we are grateful to the municipality of Kristinestad for the fast permitting of further eight wind turbines which Vestas will install equally fast already in 2023” said Andreas Schmid, Head of Engineering at Prime Capital AG. “We are looking forward to extending our cooperation with Vestas on this project which will support the power supply to Prime Capital`s ambitious green hydrogen project in Kristinestad. Further, Vestas and Prime Capital will explore the development of the Lappfjärd project as a showcase for innovative grid services that will support the secure operation of the Finnish power grid.”
Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe, added that the V162-6.2 MW EnVentus turbine was the perfect choice for Lappfjärd, highlighted by the expansion with the same model, and the project also shows the mutual trust between Vestas and Prime Capital.
The delivery and installation of the wind turbines are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2023 with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2023.
