Vestas has announced two new orders in Finland and the USA.
Vestas has received a 236 MW order from Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy, a long-term client from Pori, to power the Siikajoki wind project in North Ostrobothnia in Finland.
The order consists of 38 V162-6.2 MW wind turbines. It includes supply, installation, and commissioning of the turbines and Vestas’ Anti-Icing System, which efficiently removes ice formation on blades during operation to maximise energy production.
“Vestas is thrilled to work once again with the Suomen Hyötytuuli team and its owners on a wind energy project in Finland, showing the great partnership between the two companies, and we are excited to apply Vestas’ Anti-Icing System, which will boost the project’s energy production during the cold months,” says Juan Furones, Vice President Sales for Northern and Central Europe at Vestas. “This project is driven by the mutual interest of all stakeholders to support Finland’s ambition of a more decarbonised economy, and we are proud to be a part of that journey.”
”The investment increases our company’s production remarkably and contributes to reaching Finland’s climate goals. We hope that this investment, along with the other energy investments, will strengthen Finland’s energy independence and security of supply for the coming winter and beyond. We are pleased to continue this journey with Vestas,” says Toni Sulameri, Managing Director of Suomen Hyötytuuli.
Siikajoki is located about 50 km south of Oulu in North Ostrobothnia region. The delivery and installation of the wind turbines are expected to start in the second quarter of 2024, with the commissioning scheduled for the third and fourth quarters of 2024.
Vestas has received a 203 MW order to power an undisclosed wind project in the USA. The order consists of 45 V150-4.5 MW wind turbines.
The order includes 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 in the fourth quarter of 2023.
The customer and the project are undisclosed.
