Vestas has received an order for 30 MW of its V126-3.45 MW turbines for the Kiata wind farm, a southeastern Australian project developed by Windlab Ltd. The project is situated west of Horsham, Victoria, near the town of Nhill.
Delivery and commissioning of the turbines are expected in the second half of 2017. Vestas will also be providing engineering, procurement and construction.
The order also includes a five-year Active Output Management 4000 service contract and SCADA VestasOnline Business for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance.
Windlab secured financing from John Laing Group and National Australia Bank. John Laing will own approximately 72% of the wind farm, and the balance will be owned by Windlab and project neighbors, says Vestas.
