Onshore wind major, Vestas has announced that it has won its fourth order from the latest Polish auction round for a total order intake of more than 350 MW. This 36 MW wind project consists of ten V126-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode combined with site-specific towers and a 20-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service contract, offering competitive levelised cost of energy. 

The firm and unconditional order is for the two wind projects Dobrowo and Retowo, for which the conditional contract was signed in 2019, with all conditions precedent now fulfilled. The project is located in the northwest of Poland and has been developed by ENERTRAG, a German key player in the wind industry with more than 20 years of experience in the European wind market.

“We are proud to continue our valued partnership with ENERTRAG on the Dobrowo-Retowo project in Poland. Attesting to the increasing competitiveness of wind energy, this project underlines Vestas’ capability to deliver competitive wind energy solutions and services that enable our customers to build winning bids in auctions”, states Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe.

Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2021 and commissioning is planned for the third quarter of 2021.

The firm has also recently announced that it has, in partnership with global energy producer EDL, secured service agreements for the three Australian wind farms of Coober Pedy in South Australia, Cullerin Range in New South Wales and Wonthaggi in Victoria. 

Leveraging its world-class multibrand capabilities, Vestas will deliver the maintenance of 23 Senvion MM82 and MM92-2.05 MW wind turbines across the three sites for a total of 47 MW. All agreements will commence immediately and feature the Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service programme which is designed to maximise uptime and ensure optimised performance.

“The multibrand service deals with EDL demonstrate how Vestas can leverage our market experience, broad service solutions capability and extensive supply chain to provide value for our customers throughout the wind park lifecycle – whether that is servicing Vestas turbines or third party machines,” says Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific. “We offer unmatched expertise to service more than 30 non-Vestas models and we are proud that customers all throughout our region can turn to Vestas’ broad range of industry-leading and cost-efficient service solutions.”

As the wind industry’s largest multi-brand service provider, the new agreements take Vestas’ service portfolio of Senvion turbines in Australia to 287 MW, and to over 300 MW across the Asia Pacific region. The partnership with EDL trails the recent unannounced securement of Vestas’ first Senvion service agreement in Asia, as well as two community based Senvion sites in regional Victoria, Australia.
