Vestas has secured a 72 MW order for 20 V126-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode. The order is the second Vestas has received for the 4 MW platform in China and the first order of V126-3.45 MW. As China moves towards higher rating turbines, Vestas leverages its extensive experience and capabilities from more than 18 GW of global installations of its 4 MW platform, to provide the right solutions for its customers and improve their business case.
“This order underlines the 4 MW platform’s beginning momentum in the traditionally 2 MW-dominated Chinese market and how Vestas’ flexible product portfolio enables new wind projects. Leveraging Vestas’ leading capabilities in 4 MW-rated turbines, we offer our customers industry-leading performance and reliability, ensuring their return of investment”, says Thomas Keller, CFO Vestas China.
The order also includes 3-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement. Delivery of the turbines is expected to begin in January 2019, with commissioning expected to begin in May 2019.
The project and customer are undisclosed at the customer’s request.
