The firm and unconditional orders total 59 MW of V117-3.45 MW turbines and are Vestas’ first in Honduras. Both orders are Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contracts that include the supply and installation of the wind turbines as well as the electrical and civil works, substation, and access roads. Additionally, a 15-year full-scope service agreement (AOM 5000) will ensure optimal performance of the wind turbines.
Vestas has won more than 300MW of orders as part of a hat-trick of new deals in North and Central America.
Honduras is the second new market for Vestas in 2016, underlining Vestas’ unparalleled and expanding global reach. Turbine delivery is planned for the first quarter of 2017, while commissioning is expected for the fourth quarter of 2017.
“Supplying wind turbines and service solutions are only part of our business, and getting these two Engineering, Procurement and Construction contracts in Honduras, which becomes Vestas’ second new market in 2016, demonstrates Vestas’ ability to meet customers’ wind energy needs anywhere in the world”, highlights President of Vestas Mediterranean, Marco Graziano.
