The order for 25 Vestas V110-2.0 MW wind turbines is for the country’s second wind power project. The order for the 50 MW Tsetsii wind park, located in the Gobi desert in southern Mongolia, was placed by Clean Energy Asia LLC – a joint venture between SB Energy Corp. (Japan) and Newcom LLC (Mongolia) as part of an ambitious renewable energy strategy to tap into the rich wind resources of Mongolia.
“Vestas looks forward to supplying world-leading wind power technology to Mongolia and to supporting the country’s efforts in reducing reliance on coal and in realising its vision to contribute to the sustainable energy demand of Mongolia and the Asia Pacific region”, says Chris Beaufait, President of Vestas Asia Pacific and China.
Mongolia has abundant wind resources and is well located in the promising Asia Super Grid. Being confident in the long-term potential of the Mongolian market, Vestas established a subsidiary there, Vestas Mongolia, earlier this year.
For this Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) project, Vestas will supply and supervise the installation of the turbines and be responsible for the civil & electrical balance of plant works.
The order also includes a five-year Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 service contract and a SCADA VestasOnline Business for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance.
The Tsetsii project is jointly funded by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and Japan International Cooperation Agency. Delivery of the turbines is expected in the first quarter of 2017 with commissioning expected in the fourth quarter of 2017.
