Vestas has secured a firm and unconditional order for 12 V112-3.3 MW wind turbines in Denmark, to be installed in western Jutland near Vemb, in the Holstebro municipality.
The 39 MW order is part of a frame agreement and has been placed by long-time Vestas customer Skovgaard Invest ApS. The order for the “Øst for Vemb” project includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, along with a 15-year full-scope Vestas Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service agreement.
“Vestas has been an important partner for Skovgaard Invest for many years, and together we have created some very successful wind energy projects in Denmark. We are very pleased to work with Vestas and further build on our strong relationship”, says CEO Jørgen Skovgaard, Skovgaard Invest ApS.
Vestas has delivered wind turbines for other Skovgaard Invest ApS projects in Denmark, including in Lem Kær, Kikkenborg and Volder Mark.
“The Danish west coast holds ideal wind conditions for wind power plants in Denmark. The business case is strong and we look forward realising yet another successful project with Skovgaard Invest”, says Klaus Steen Mortensen, President of Vestas Northern Europe.
Vestas has installed more than 3.1 GW and employs about 4,200 people in Denmark. Several Danish factories also serve as Centres of Excellence and train Vestas employees from all over the world.
