Vestas to supply turbines for 126MW Had Kanghan project in Thailand

CTBR Staff Writer Published 30 September 2015

Danish turbine maker Vestas has secured a turbine supply contract from Energy Absolute for the 126MW Had Kanghan project in Thailand.

The contract requires Vestas to supply 70 units of the V110-1.8 MW turbine for the project in the Songkla and Nakhon Si Thamarat provinces.

The deal includes the supply, supervision of erection, and commissioning of the turbines, in addition to a five-year AOM 4000 service contract.

Vestas will deliver the turbines in 2016, the same year when the wind farm is expected to become operational.

Commenting on the deal, Vestas Asia Pacific & China president Chris Beaufait said: "We are pleased that Energy Absolute has selected Vestas to partner with them for their first wind energy project, which will contribute to enhancing Thailand's energy independence.

"With our technologically advanced 2 MW variant turbine and our unique tower crane solution, which is well-suited for this project, Vestas can provide Energy Absolute an superior annual energy production and low cost of energy, helping to secure business case certainty for their investment."

Besides generating renewable electricity, Energy Absolute also manufactures and distributes methyl ester biodiesel products in Thailand and internationally.

It also manufactures high speed diesel oil and glycerin products; and manufactures and distributes liquefied petroleum gas.

In August, Vestas secured a contract from German wind power developer wpd to supply turbines for the Tohkoja project in Kalajoki, Finland.

So far, Vestas delivered over 69GW of wind turbines across the globe.
