Vestas will supply turbines and supervise installation for the Qingyu project, located in Shapu Town of Fuqing City. The firm and unconditional order also includes a two-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM4000) service contract, in which Vestas guarantees a defined level of availability and performance as well as a SCADA VestasOnline Business system for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance.
“This project will be the first in China to utilise turbines from the Vestas 3 MW platform, which offers industry-leading versatility and cost of energy”, said Chris Beaufait, President of Vestas Asia Pacific and China. “Through our experience from other projects in Fujian and the 3 MW platform’s proven global track record, we are confident the project will deliver strong performance to Huadian under harsh wind conditions that include typhoons”.
Delivery of turbines is expected in the second quarter of 2017, with commissioning scheduled for the second half of the year.
