Vestas has secured two orders for turbines totaling 74.15 MW for wind farms in China.
In one announcement, Vestas says it will supply turbines and supervise installation for the Qingyu project, located in Shapu Town of Fuqing City. The firm and unconditional order also includes a two-year Active Output Management 4000 service contract, in which Vestas guarantees a defined level of availability and performance, as well as a SCADA VestasOnline Business system for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance.
“This project will be the first in China to utilize turbines from the Vestas 3 MW platform, which offers industry-leading versatility and cost of energy,” says Chris Beaufait, president of Vestas Asia-Pacific and China. “Through our experience from other projects in Fujian and the 3 MW platform’s proven global track record, we are confident the project will deliver strong performance to Huadian under harsh wind conditions that include typhoons.”
Delivery of turbines is expected in the second quarter of 2017, with commissioning scheduled for the second half of the year.
Vestas introduced the 3 MW platform in 2010 and has, since then, installed more than 11 GW of 3 MW turbines all over the world.
In addition, the Danish manufacturer also received an order for the V110-2.0 MW turbine from an undisclosed customer in China.
This 50 MW order employs the Power Optimised Mode for the V110-2.0 MW turbine, maximizing output based on site-specific factors. Turbine delivery is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2017.
