The firm and unconditional order comprises 21 V100-2.0 MW wind turbines, 17 of which will be delivered in power optimised mode to 2.2 MW. The wind park will be placed near Hogager in the municipality of Hol-stebro in Denmark.
The order for the wind power plant includes supply, installation and commissioning of turbines, along with a 10-year Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 service agreement.
The order comes at a time with low energy prices and uncertainty around the long-term regulatory framework for onshore wind in Denmark. Being firmly rooted in local community ownership, the order also highlights the continued interest for onshore wind despite challenging market conditions.
“Denmark continues to be an important market for Vestas and we are proud to be delivering Denmark’s soon-to-be third largest onshore wind park”, says Klaus Steen Mortensen, President of Vestas Northern Europe, and continues: “The order is evidence of a home market with a strong local interest for onshore wind projects that we hope will be reflected in a long-term supportive framework”.
Delivery of the turbines is expected in the third quarter of 2016 with commissioning in the fourth quarter.
