Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for 29 V100-2.0 MW turbines for a wind power project in Poland. The order was placed by EDF Energies Nouvelles (EDF EN), a leader in renewable energy power generation.
The wind power plant is one of the largest in the north-western part of Poland and will be installed in the province of Lubuskie near Rzepin. The wind turbine delivery is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2015 with commissioning expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2015. This project is a part of the Frame Agreement signed between EDF EN and Vestas for Europe and the USA in 2011.
The EPC contract includes foundation works, supply, installation and commissioning of the 29 V100-2.0 MW turbines, along with a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution and a two-year service agreement (AOM 4000).
“It is a pleasure for us to announce another large order for Poland and to further build on the long-term partnership with our highly-valued customer EDF EN. We are happy to be chosen as the wind turbine supplier and service provider for these wind power plants and to consolidate our market leadership in Poland,” says Klaus Steen Mortensen, President of Vestas Northern Europe.
Today, Vestas has delivered about 540 wind turbines, totalling more than 1,100 MW, in Poland.
About the V100-2.0 MW
The V100-1.8/2.0 MW turbines allow our customers to increase productivity by opening up low- and medium-wind sites which were previously regarded as non-viable. To maximise power output at such locations, the wind turbines' 100 m rotor gains more from the available wind starting at an incredibly low 3 m/s. Thanks to the 49 m blades, the wind turbines deliver a notable rotor-to-generator ratio producing a remarkable capacity and yield at low- and medium-wind sites.
Every single day, Vestas wind turbines (vestas.com) deliver clean energy that supports the global fight against climate change. Wind power from Vestas’ more than 52,000 wind turbines currently reduces carbon emissions by over 60 million tons of CO2 every year, while at the same time building energy security and independence. Today, Vestas has installed turbines in 73 countries, providing jobs for approximately 17,500 passionate people at our service and project sites, research facilities, factories and offices all over the world. With 52 per cent more megawatts installed than our closest competitor and more than 62 GW of cumulative installed capacity worldwide, Vestas is the world leader in wind energy.
