EDF Energies Nouvelles orders 29 V100-2.0 MW wind turbines for wind farm in Rzepin.
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.
The V100-1.8/2.0 MW wind turbines allow 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.
