Vestas Orders China

Vestas has announced that it has secured two new orders for wind turbines in China worth a combined 301 MW. The first order has been received for a project that includes the supply of 56 V136-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 Power Optimised Mode as well as a 2-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement.

Deliveries are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2020, with commissioning planned for the same quarter.

The second order has been secured for two projects in Jiangsu Province in China worth a combined 99 MW. Both projects will feature a mixed site configuration consisting of V155-3.3 MW and V110-2.2 MW turbines. The order includes the supply of 16 V155-3.3 MW and 21 V110-2.2 MW turbines as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement.

This is the second order of V155-3.3 MW turbines, the firms’ latest 4 MW platform variant designed for low wind condition, since its introduction in China in June 2019. The order also features its first 20-year service agreement in the country, a milestone that showcases how the firm, by leveraging its industry-leading service capabilities, can optimise lifetime performance and improve business case certainty for its customers in the world’s largest wind market.

“The order is significant in two ways, as it demonstrates the V155-3.3 MW turbine’s suitability for China’s low wind market and marks our Chinese customer’s increasing trust in Vestas’ long-term service capabilities and commitment. I believe with the shift of attention to the entire lifecycle of wind farms, more of our Chinese customers will partner with us on long-term service contracts,” said Thomas Keller, president of Vestas China.

Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2020, while commissioning is planned for the third quarter in the same year.

The new orders combined take the firms’ announced order intake in China to around 750 MW in the first quarter of 2020.
