Vestas has secured an 86 MW order with Petroquímica Comodoro Rivadavia S.A. (PCR), for two projects in Argentina: Mataco III and Vivoratá, nearby Bahia Blanca and Mar del Plata cities respectively in the Province of Buenos Aires.

“We are pleased to work with PCR once more, reinforcing both companies’ interest to accelerate the energy transition in Argentina, where Vestas pioneered wind energy. We will continue to play an active role in developing Argentina’s renewable energy system with our partners’ continuous collaboration and trust” says Sales Senior Director for Vestas LATAM South Cone, Andrés Gismondi.

“We are thrilled to be working with Vestas again on two new projects. PCR is one of the leading companies involved in the energy transition of Argentina and, together with Vestas, we have already built 330 MW and during 2023 our new projects will add additional 86 MW”, says PCR CEO, Martin Brandi.

This new order includes 19 V150-4.5 MW turbines as well as a 30-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service contract, optimising the energy production for the lifetime of the project.

Turbine delivery is planned for the first quarter of 2023, whilst commissioning is expected for the fourth quarter of that same year.

With this new order, Vestas consolidates its leading position in Argentina with 50 percent market share.
