Vestas has received a wind energy order from Hanas, for a total capacity of 50 MW.
This is the fourth order from Hanas in 2014.
The Hanas order features 25 V100-2.0MW wind turbines to be installed in Ningxia, a province in the northwest of China, during the second quarter of 2015.
President of Vestas Asia Pacific and China, Chris Beaufait, says: “We celebrate yet another order from long-time Vestas partner Hanas – the fourth order they have placed with us this year. We have been working closely with Hanas for several years to provide them with products and solutions to match their on-site wind conditions and maximize their energy output.”
Hanas is a privately held Chinese investment company. With today’s order, Vestas has secured firm and unconditional orders with Hanas totalling 600 MW since the first project in 2009, of which 200 MW have been secured in 2014.
President of Hanas, Mr. Ma Fuqiang, says: “We have a strong commitment to wind energy, and we are looking for a long-term trusted partner who can help us achieve a good return on investment. That is why we have been partnering with Vestas for the past five years, and we are glad to continue our great collaboration.”
The delivery of the 25 V100-2.0MW turbines will begin in March 2015, with installation expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2015. The order includes installation and commissioning supervision, a Vestas Online® SCADA system and a two-year AOM4000 service agreement.
