Vestas has announced that it has bagged two orders in South Korea and Denmark. The first order has been received for the delivery and set up of wind turbines in South Korea, while the second-order has been received for the repowering of a 36 MW wind project in Denmark.

The first order was placed for the 42 MW Cheongsong Myeonbong Mt Wind Power project with EPC contractor Kumho Industrial. It is the first V136-4.2 MW order the firm has received in South Korea.

The 42 MW order consists of ten V136-4.2 MW wind turbines at a hub height of 112m as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement, designed to maximise uptime and ensure optimised performance of the project. To optimise operation in the site’s specific wind conditions, the turbines will feature Vestas’ High Wind Operation (HWO), an intelligent control option that allows the turbines to continue operating beyond standard cut-out wind speeds.

“The introduction of the V136-4.2 MW turbine to South Korea demonstrates how Vestas continuously improves the available technology, for the benefit of our customers and the South Korean renewable energy industry. This new product will be certified to local standards by the second half of 2020 and will also be using steel and towers from Korea, enabling a high percentage of local content for the project”, said William Gaillard, sales vice-president of Vestas Asia Pacific.

The second order is for the 36 MW repowering order for the final phase of the 94 MW Overgaard 1 wind park in Randers Municipality in Denmark. The order is derived from the energy-neutral auction in November 2019 in Denmark and it is placed by SE Blue Renewables, a joint venture between the Danish energy company Norlys and Denmark’s largest pension company, PFA Pension.

The firm order includes supply, installation and commissioning of ten V126-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

“We are proud to partner with SE Blue Renewables on finalising the Overgaard wind park and we will utilise our strong service offerings and extensive market experience in Denmark to create maximum value for our customer’s business case”, says Christer Baden Hansen, Vice President Sales North and West, Vestas Northern & Central Europe.

Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2021, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of 2021.
