Wind energy in Norway: Vestas wind turbines for a wind farm with 328 MW

Vestas has secured an order for several wind power projects in Norway that will feature different 4 MW wind turbines from Vestas’ product portfolio.

Utilising the 4 MW platform’s flexibility, the wind turbines will ensure a high capacity factor and maximise energy production in a tailormade configuration based on the sites’ specific wind conditions.

“The order affirms the competitiveness of Vestas’ wind power solutions and that wind power provides an attractive long-term energy investment that goes well beyond its climate and sustainability benefits”, says Nils de Baar, President North at Vestas North and Central Europe. “We are very proud that our innovative technology will be able to create maximum value for our customer”.

The wind projects will feature a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution lowering turbine downtime to optimize the energy output. The contract further includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 5-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. Turbine installation is expected to start in 2020 and 2021.
