Vestas says that OX2 has placed an order in Sweden for 41 V126-3.45 MW turbines with power-optimized mode to 3.6 MW and Vestas’ de-icing technology for its largest wind power project to date.
According to Vestas, this is the third time OX2 has placed an order for its turbines in 2016, reinforcing the two companies’ collaboration and market position in the Nordic region. The firm and unconditional order is for the Lehtirova wind farm at the border of the Gällivare and Pajala municipalities in northern Sweden, as previously reported.
Klaus Steen Mortensen, president of Vestas Northern Europe, said, “We are very pleased that OX2 has decided to continue building on the already great relationship with Vestas – this time with an order for their largest-ever wind park. We are happy knowing that the order for our upgraded 3 MW platform, accompanied by Vestas’ de-icing technology, will ensure full power-curve capacity in cold northern Sweden, where the wind farm will be located.”
Vestas says the order includes supply, installation and commissioning of the turbines and a 15-year Active Output Management service agreement.
Delivery of the wind turbines is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2018.
