Jianshui Suntien Wind Power Energy Co., Ltd., a fully owned subsidiary of Hebei Construction & Investment Group Co., Ltd. has placed a 74 MW order for the Yunnan Jianshui Qikeshu wind farm in the Yunnan province of China.
The firm and unconditional order comprises the supply and installation of 37 units of the V100-2.0 MW wind turbine as well as a two-year Active Output Management (AOM 4000) service agreement. Turbine delivery is scheduled for the third quarter of 2015, with commissioning expected to take place in the fourth quarter of 2015. Reflecting Vestas’ new China strategy, the V100-2.0 MW turbines are particularly well-suited for the low-wind, high-altitude conditions of the Jianshui Qikeshu wind farm.
A long-time Vestas customer, Hebei Construction is a leading player in the wind industry with 10 years of wind energy development experience and four previous projects working with Vestas.
“Vestas and Hebei Construction have worked together on several projects in China, and we are pleased they have chosen Vestas technology to meet their requirements for this low-wind site project”, says Chris Beaufait, President of Vestas Asia Pacific & China.
