Vestas wins order for 81 MW of wind power in the UK

Vestas has secured an 81 MW order from Invenergy for the Pencloe wind energy project in Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland, UK. Vestas will deliver 18 V136-4.5 MW wind turbines and the order includes the supply, delivery, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines.

Upon completion, Vestas will service the turbines under a multi-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement designed to ensure optimized performance of the assets.

“We are delighted to reach this key milestone in our collaboration with Invenergy,” said James Ian Robinson, country director and UK sales director for Vestas in Northern and Central Europe. “Vestas technology offers a strong business case for the competitive UK electricity market. We look forward to the execution phase where we will continue our strong construction track record. “We thank Invenergy for entrusting Vestas with its largest wind farm to date in the UK.”

“We are excited to be using state-of-the-art Vestas turbines at the Pencloe Wind Energy Centre, which will be the largest project developed by Invenergy in the UK,” said Stuart Winter, Vice President and Country Director at Invenergy. “This project not only represents our mission to accelerate cleaner, more reliable and affordable energy, but also underscores our dedication to fostering positive community relationships and ensuring local economies benefit from our projects.”

Delivery of the turbine is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2025 and the project will be fully operational in early 2026.
