The firm and unconditional order follows the 250 MW Hanas Group ordered in November and will take Hanas’ fleet of Vestas turbines to 900 MW. The order for the Wanglejing Sunjialou wind park in western China’s Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region underlines the strong partnership between Vestas and Hanas Group and emphasises our shared focus on reducing the wind park’s lifetime cost of energy.
The order includes two-year Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 service contract in which Vestas guarantees a defined level of availability and performance, and a SCADA VestasOnline Business for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance. Delivery and commissioning are expected in the second half of 2016.
“We are pleased to place another order with Vestas and increase our portfolio of the company’s turbines to almost 1 GW. Throughout our cooperation, Vestas has proven its ability to deliver a low lifetime cost of energy, and we look forward to the Wanglejing Sunjialou wind park doing the same”, says Ma Fuqiang, President of Hanas Group.
Chris Beaufait, President of Vestas Asia Pacific and China, says “Hanas Group having ordered close to 1 GW of Vestas turbines reaffirms our companies’ shared priority to deliver highly competitive wind energy solutions. Vestas is firmly on track in China, and we are confident that our ability to drive down the cost of energy will position us well as the Chinese market increasingly focuses on lifetime costs”.
Hanas Group, headquartered in Yinchuan, capital of Ningxia, is a well-known clean energy solutions provider committed to China’s energy structure transformation. The cooperation between Vestas and Hanas started in 2011. In October 2015, the two parties signed a cooperation agreement which reiterated their common goal to reinforce mutually beneficial collaboration in the years to come.
