The order includes supply, installation, and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance of the assets.
Derrinlough at 126 MW is the largest wind project to successfully clear the recent RESS-2 Auction and once installed, it will be the largest single wind farm installation in Ireland. This order also marks the first deployment of the V150-6.0 MW EnVentus technology project for Vestas in Ireland.
“Vestas are delighted to once again partner with Bord na Móna in Ireland” said Juan Furones, Vice President Sales for Northern and Central Europe at Vestas. “Derrinlough marks the continued relationship between Bord na Móna and Vestas following the successful delivery of the Cloncreen project. Vestas are proud to see the success of the EnVentus platform in Ireland which offers a wide range of customised solutions to suit the needs of each unique project.”
The delivery and installation of the wind turbines are expected to occur in the first quarter of 2024 with the commissioning scheduled for the third quarter of 2024.
