Global wind energy major Vestas has announced the signing of multiple agreements for the supply of wind energy turbines for projects in Australia, France, Italy, and the Netherlands with a combined capacity of 369 MW.

The largest order has been received in Australia where the firm has bagged an order for a project that includes the supply and installation of 50 V150-4.2 MW turbines, as well as a ten-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. Commissioning of the turbines is scheduled to commence between the third and fourth quarter of 2021.

In France, the firm has received two orders.

The first order has been placed by renewable energy producer Elicio for the 32 MW Le Haut Plateau wind project. The contract includes the supply and installation of nine V136-3.45 MW wind turbines delivered in 3.6 Power Optimised Mode, as well as an Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement for at least the next 20 years. Turbine delivery will begin in the third quarter of 2021, with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of the same year.

The international renewable energy developer Valeco has placed a 42 MW order for three wind projects in France. The contract includes the supply and installation of eight V100-2.0 MW wind turbines delivered in 2.2 MW Power Optimised Mode and eight V117-3.45 MW wind turbines in 3.0 MW operating mode, as well as Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreements, designed to maximise energy production for the sites. Turbine delivery and commissioning are scheduled for the first half of 2021.

In Italy, the firm has received a 49 MW order for two projects. The auction-based projects, located in the Campania region, will include six V110-2.0 MW wind turbines delivered in 2.2 MW Power Optimised Mode and ten V117-3.45 MW wind turbines in 3.6 MW operating mode. The supply and installation contract also includes a 5-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. 

“This order showcases how our diverse portfolio continues to offer the winning solutions to our customers’ different business cases in Italy”, says Vestas Vice President of Sales Region Southern Europe and Turkey, Rainer Karan. 

Finally, in the Netherlands, the firm received an order from Vattenfall Wind Development Netherlands for the Jaap Rodenburg II project in the Netherlands. The wind project will be installed in the Province Flevoland, near Almere and will feature ten V117-3.45 MW turbines with 91.5 m towers delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode to maximise energy production in the site’s medium to high wind conditions, while meeting the local tip height requirements. This repowering project will replace the 10 V66 turbines and will more than double the installed capacity at the location.

“In Vestas, we find a well-known and valued business partner and we look forward to working together to realise Jaap Rodenburg II. Vattenfall wants to make fossil-free living possible within one generation. Expanding renewable generation capacity is a core part of that mission”, says Joost de Gooijer, Project Development Manager, Vattenfall Wind Development Netherlands B.V. “With the V117 we selected a reliable turbine, with proven technology which we believe is the best solution for this site.”

The contract further includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 10-years Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. Deliveries are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2021, while commissioning is planned for the second quarter of 2021.
