Vestas has secured a 95 MW order with Pampa Energía for the Pepe VI project in the Province of Buenos Aires, in Bahía Blanca, in Argentina.
The project will feature 21 V150-4.5 MW wind turbines which Vestas will supply and install. Vestas will also deliver a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement upon completion. This agreement will optimise energy production while also providing long-term business case certainty.
“Thanks to our valued relationship with Pampa Energía, Vestas is proud to be the sustainable energy solutions provider of choice and long-term service supplier for PE Pampa Energía VI Wind Farm in Bahía Blanca, Argentina, a prolific area for wind energy production in the country,” says Andrés Gismondi, Sales Vice President of Vestas LATAM Southern Cone.
Turbine delivery is planned for the fourth quarter of 2023, whilst commissioning is expected for the second quarter of 2024.
Vestas pioneered Argentina’s wind energy market by installing the country’s first commercial wind turbine in Comodoro Rivadavia in 1994 and sustaining a leading position in the country.
Vestas has received a 56 MW order from RPM Access to power the Prescott wind project in Iowa, USA. The order consists of 13 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines delivered in 4.3 MW operating mode.
“Working together with experienced regional partners like RPM Access is vital to achieving a clean energy transition in key markets like the Midwest. Vestas is excited to partner with RPM Access in Adams County, Iowa, to enable and promote the growth of wind energy through Vestas’s industry-leading technology,” said Laura Beane, President of Vestas North America.
“On behalf of Prescott Wind Energy LLC, we are very pleased to work with Vestas, a highly professional wind energy turbine manufacturer. RPM Access, who developed the Prescott Wind Farm, is proud to use the highest quality equipment, and help the local community to meet future clean energy needs,” said Mr. Felix Friedman, the project’s developer. “We are looking forward to working with the Vestas team again to complete the Prescott Wind Farm next spring.”
The order includes supply, delivery, and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance of the asset.
Turbine delivery begins in the fourth quarter of 2023, with commissioning scheduled for the first quarter of 2024.
