Vestas to supply 180MW turbines in Thailand

CTBR Staff Writer Published 21 August 2017

Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has secured a contract to supply 60 V136-3.0 MW turbines, with a total capacity of 180MW, for a wind farm in Thailand.

Under the contract, Vestas will deliver and install the turbines, which have a hub height of 157 meters, to an unnamed wind farm in the country. Besides, the firm has won 15-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM4000) service contract for the wind farm.

The turbine delivery will commence in late 2017 and the operations will start in mid 2018. After the commencement of operations at the wind farm, Vestas’ total installed capacity in Thailand is expected to increase to more than 300MW.

Vestas Asia Pacific president Clive Turton said: “With this sale, Vestas is demonstrating that we can provide customised and competitive solutions for our customers in Thailand. This sale underlines our proven track record for low-wind conditions in the region as well as the strength of our low cost of energy and business case certainty that the customers are demanding.”

Earlier this month,  Vestas received an order to supply 123 of its V136-3.45MW that amount to 424MW, for a wind project in Mexico.

The order has been placed by Zuma Energía for its Parque Eólico Reynosa project. This wind project will be located in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas, Mexico. This project is considered to be one of the largest wind projects in Latin America.
