Vestas has secured two contracts in the USA and Taiwan.
Vestas has received a 178 MW order to power an undisclosed wind project in the USA. The order consists of 23 V150-4.5 MW turbines, 14 V150-4.2 MW turbines in 4.3 MW operating mode, and four V136-3.45 turbines delivered in 3.6 operating mode.
The order includes the supply, delivery, and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a multi-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement designed to ensure optimised performance of the asset.
Turbine delivery begins in the third quarter of 2023, with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2023.
The customer and project are undisclosed.
In Taiwan, Vestas has secured a 21 MW order with wpd AG that includes five V117-4.2 MW turbines with 91.5m towers in two wind projects.
The order includes a long-term Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement for the wind farms to ensure optimised performance and long-term business case certainty for the customer.
“We are pleased to extend our long-term partnership with our global key account, wpd in Taiwan,” said Alex Robertson, General Manager of Vestas Taiwan. “We would like to thank wpd for entrusting Vestas with these projects and strengthening our strategic collaboration at local market. Onshore wind is the fastest way to bring new renewable generation capacity online in Taiwan, but more governmental support is needed to accelerate the build-out”.
With this order, Vestas’ total onshore installed volume in Taiwan will exceed more than 350 MW, of which 130 MW is with wpd, underlining the strong global cooperation with wpd AG and Vestas’ commitment to driving the energy transition in Taiwan.
Deliveries are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2023, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of the same year.
