The US project consists of 46 V150-4.5 MW turbines, three V110-2.0 MW turbines in 2.2 MW operating mode, and two V136-3.45 MW turbines in 3.6 MW operating mode. The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance of the asset.

Turbine delivery begins in the third quarter of 2022 with commissioning scheduled for the first quarter of 2023.

The customer and project are undisclosed.

In France, the Ardennes I wind park, to be located in Grand-Est, will feature 12 wind turbines from the 4 MW platform with V150 rotors. The Somme I and Aisne I wind parks, to be located in Hauts de France, will feature eleven wind turbines from the 4 MW platform with V126 rotors. The supply and installation order includes a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

Roy Mahfouz, CEO of H2air, says, “We are proud of this success. Despite the challenges linked to the current conjuncture, it is due to a talented and pugnacious team and good partnerships that we have been able to launch the construction of these 80 MW. It is a part of a large portfolio which sustains the healthy and organic growth for H2air”.

Vestas France Country Manager, Hugues Faivre, says, “We are very glad to partner once again with H2air. Our 4 MW platform is designed to provide business certainty to our customers across a broad range of wind and site conditions. This versatility enables our customers to mix different turbine types, obtaining exceptional energy capture and optimizing the energy output of their wind parks”.

Turbine delivery at Ardennes I is planned by the fourth quarter of 2022 and commissioning is scheduled for the first quarter of 2023.

Turbine delivery and commissioning at Somme I and Aisne I are planned by 2022.

Vestas installed its first turbine in France in 1991. Since then, the company has led the country’s wind industry with 6.1 GW of installed wind capacity. These numbers position the company as the main contributor to the expansion of wind energy in France, with a 30 percent cumulative market share.
