Vestas has received a 116 MW order from Eneco for the Windpark Maasvlakte 2 project in the Netherlands. The order includes supply and installation of 13 V162-6.0 MW turbines and nine V117-4.2 MW turbines in 4.3 MW operating mode, which will be part of the wind farm Eneco is building on the outer edge of Maasvlakte 2 in the Port of Rotterdam, by order of Rijkswaterstaat, the Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management in the Netherlands.

Combined, the 22 wind turbines will generate 416 GWh of green electricity annually, which is enough to supply approximately 152,000 homes with power. In practice, the energy produced will contribute to making the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management energy neutral. This is a new addition to the more than 3 GW of Vestas turbines already installed in the Netherlands.

The project is complex as turbines will be erected on both the ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ sea defences around the industrial harbour of Maasvlakte 2, and to materialise this project, close cooperation between all stakeholders has proven to be crucial. For the soft part of sea defence, Vestas will install the EnVentus turbines with monopile foundations on the sport beach, and the rest of the turbines will be installed on the dike infrastructure.

Vestas will provide service for the project through a long-term Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, providing power performance certainty and Vestas’ industry-leading service expertise throughout the lifetime of the project.

Vestas is planning to deliver the first turbines in the second quarter of 2022, and they will be commissioned by the end of 2022.

In Brazil, Vestas has secured an order from Elera Renováveis for the 248 MW Seridó Oeste project, located in Parelhas, Rio Grande do Norte. The project will feature 55 V150-4.5 MW turbines which Vestas will supply and install. Upon completion, Vestas will also deliver a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. This agreement will optimise energy production while also providing long-term business case certainty. The delivery of wind turbines is planned for the second quarter of 2023, with commissioning scheduled for the second quarter of 2024.

The wind turbines are locally produced under the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) FINAME rules, creating jobs and expanding Brazil’s wind energy industry and supporting the government’s initiative to promote renewables and a more sustainable energy mix.

Also in Brazil, Vestas has signed an agreement with 2W Energia for the 113 MW Kairos project, located in the municipality of Icapuí in the state of Ceará. The order includes 25 V150-4.5 MW wind turbines as well as a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service contract, optimising the energy production for the lifetime of the project.

With this project, Vestas will surpass the milestone of 6 GW of order intake in Brazil for the V150-4.2 MW wind turbine, including the 4.5 MW variant, which delivers an excellent fit to the local wind conditions. Globally, the V150-4.2 MW turbine has surpassed 17.5 GW in order intake.

The delivery of wind turbines is planned for the second quarter of 2023, with commissioning scheduled for the last quarter of the same year.

The wind turbines are locally produced under the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) FINAME rules, creating jobs and expanding Brazil’s wind energy industry and supporting the government’s initiative to promote renewables and a more sustainable energy mix.

In The Netherlands, Vestas has received a 257 MW order from Windkoepel Groen for a total of seven projects. The order includes supply and installation of 37 V162-6.2 MW EnVentus wind turbines, with some delivered in 6.0 MW operating mode, and eight V126-3.45 MW wind turbines delivered in 3.8 MW operating mode.

The seven projects are part of Windplan Groen, a collective initiative to repower existing windfarms in the Eastern part of the Province of Flevoland. The individual owners are joined in Windkoepel Groen.

Vestas is planning to deliver the first wind turbines in the third quarter of 2022. The final wind turbines will be commissioned in late 2023.

In the Polish wind market, Vestas has secured a 50 MW order from Passat Energy Sp z o.o, a special purpose vehicle wholly owned by Iberdrola Renovables Internacional S.A.U., for the Korytnica II project in central Poland.

Korytnica II is an extension of the 83 MW Korytnica I project, which comprises 25 V126-3.3 MW Vestas turbines. The order adds to the more than 4 GW in orders secured by Vestas in Poland for turbine supply, an industry-leading tally.

At Korytnica II, Vestas will supply and install 14 of its V126-3.45 MW turbines in 3.6 MW operating mode at a hub height of 132 metres. The Korytnica II project will be serviced by Vestas under a long-term service agreement.

Deliveries at Korytnica II are expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2022, while full commissioning is planned for beginning of 2023.

The project, which is located northeast of Warsaw, has been developed with support from Poland’s fourth Contracts for Difference (CfD) auction.
