Vestas has received an order for 15 V136-3.6 MW wind turbines for a 54 MW wind power plant located in Marker in south-east Norway. The firm and unconditional order is placed by the leading Swiss-based international energy and infrastructure company BKW Energie AG, which owns a large stake in the 1 GW Fosen Vind project that Vestas announced last year.
“We are convinced that with Vestas we can count on an experienced and high quality partner to meet our expectations for the Marker wind power project,” says Martina Dabo, Head of Business Unit Wind, BKW Energie AG.
“BKW Energie AG is already very active in Norway with a large stake in the 1 GW Fosen Vind project, Europe’s largest onshore wind park when in operation. We are therefore very pleased to continue the partnership and deliver our turbines and services to the Marker wind power plant,” adds Klaus Steen Mortensen, President, Vestas Northern Europe.
The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines. Delivery is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2018.
