Vestas Secured Orders Worth 417 MW in the Netherlands and USA

Vestas has announced that it has secured two orders worth a combined 417 MW in wind turbine deliveries for new projects in the USA and repowering contracts in the Netherlands. 

The first order is from SwifterwinT op Land, a collaboration of more than 170 residents and entrepreneurs in the Netherlands, which has placed a 207 MW order for their repowering project Windplanblauw Onshore. The wind park currently consists of 46 turbines of various turbine variants and brands which will be replaced by 37 new and more efficient turbine variants from the EnVentus platform.

Once the onshore project is repowered, it will generate enough electricity for more than 400.000 local households.

Demonstrating the large potential in replacing older turbines with innovative technology, Vestas has developed a customised solution that comprises 37 V162-5.6 MW turbines with both 136.5m and 168m hub heights and a 25-year service and availability contract, capable of maximising the annual energy production while meeting local restrictions.

The order is adding to Vestas’ installed onshore wind capacity of more than 2 GW in the country.

“This is our first major EnVentus project in the Netherlands. The EnVentus turbine, in combination with our high steel towers and long-term service contract, was a great fit for the project, delivering exceptional levelised cost of energy, driving the industry forward”, said Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe. “Once finalised, the repowered part of the project will almost quadruple its annual energy production, marking a significant step in achieving the goals of the Dutch Climate Agreement.” Vestas Netherlands USA

The contracts include supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and thus optimising the energy output. The delivery for the project is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2022 while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of 2022 and the first quarter of 2023.

The other order has been received for 210 MW of V150-4.2 MW turbines for a wind project in the USA. The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 10-year AOM 5000 service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance for the lifetime of the project. Turbine delivery and commissioning are scheduled for the first quarter of 2022.
