Upon completion, Vestas will deliver a 30-year Active Output Management 5000 service and maintenance agreement (AOM5000) to optimise energy production, while providing Mercury with long-term business case certainty for the wind farm.

“We are pleased that Vestas and Mercury’s portfolio continues to expand in New Zealand’s promising renewable energy market” said Jan-Daniel Kämmer, Vice President Sales of Vestas Australia and New Zealand. “Kaiwera Downs Wind Farm reinforces our common vision of decarbonising New Zealand’s energy network together.”

Danny Nielsen, Senior Vice President and Country Head of Vestas Australia and New Zealand, added that Kaiwera Downs Wind Farm will build on Vestas current Australian & New Zealand installed base of almost 5 GW, allowing the company to continue to offer our best-in-class energy solutions for our customers and local communities.

While featuring the largest rotor diameter in New Zealand, it is also the first wind project to be constructed on the South Island since 2015 and will be Mercury’s first wind project since Turitea Wind Farm was announced in 2019, which is also a partnership with Vestas.

Delivery of Vestas’ wind turbines is expected to occur in the second quarter of 2023, with commissioning to commence in the third quarter of 2023.
