Vestas to deliver 100MW turbines in India

CTBR Staff Writer Published 04 September 2017

Wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has secured an order to deliver 50 V110-2.0 MW wind turbines, which has a total capacity of 100MW, to a undisclosed customer in India.

The contract includes delivery, installation and commissioning of the turbines and civil and electrical works of the project.

A 10-year active output management 4000 (AOM4000) service contract and VestasOnline business, the SCADA system for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance is also included in the contract.

The delivery of the turbines will begin in late 2017, with commissioning taking place in the first half of 2018.

The contract follows the inauguration of Vestas’ blades factory in Gujarat and the 54MW Periyapatti order secured by the company earlier this year.

Vestas Asia Pacific president Clive Turton said: “This order underlines the broad range of capabilities and offerings that Vestas has to offer in the Indian market now and in the future. Our extensive experience from around 4 GW of turnkey projects across the globe has been key in securing this order, which is another significant step forward in a key market.”

Recently, Vestas has secured an order to deliver 25 V110-2.0 MW wind turbines for the Sainshand wind park in the Dornogobi province, Mangolia, East Asia. The firm also won an order to supply wind turbines for the 200MW wind farm to be located in central Texas, US.

In June 2017, the firm has won a long-term service contract from Infigen for its wind portfolio of 557MW in Australia. The company also secured supply orders for 220MW from Argentine firm Genneia.

Founded in 1988 and headquartered in Denmark, Vestas has a workforce of over 10000 and specializes in wind power solutions.
