CTBR Staff Writer Published 31 August 2015

Danish turbine maker Vestas has won a contract from German wind power developer wpd to deliver turbines for the Tohkoja project in Kalajoki, Finland.

Under the contract, the Danish firm will supply and install 22 V117-3.3MW turbines.

The financial details of the deal has not been disclosed, however the deal includes a 15-year service agreement and a de-icing system.

Vestas expects to deliver the turbines in the second quarter of next year, while the wind farm is planned to be commissioned in the fourth quarter.

wpd turbine procurement head Lars Müller said: "We have already cooperated well with Vestas on many projects, and we look forward to a successful implementation of the Tohkoja wind farm as well."

Vestas Northern Europe president Klaus Steen Mortensen said: "This project features the Vestas De-icing System, which ensures efficient operation even when ice build-up conditions exist.

"After many years of close collaboration on wind energy projects in Germany, we are pleased to be working with wpd on what will become one of the largest wind parks in Finland."

The Tohkoja wind farm will be wpd's third project in Finland. Via its subsidiary firm, wpd Finland, the company is working to complete over 750MW of projects and has developed the 480MW Suurhiekka offshore wind farm.
