Vestas will deliver and commission 13 Vestas V100-2.0MW wind turbines for a wind plant in South Korea's northeastern Gangwon province. According to Vestas, the project will mark the first appearance of the V100 machines in the country.
The order was placed by one of the largest South Korean firms that have been active in the wind power industry as a project developer and engineering, procurement and construction contractor.
Delivery and commissioning are expected to begin during the second half of 2016. Vestas will be responsible for the supply and installation of the wind turbines.
The project, with an expected annual power production of 76.6 GWh, includes a 10-year service contract, in which Vestas guarantees availability and performance. The project also includes SCADA Vestas Business Online for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance. At the customer's request, additional project details are not being disclosed.
Vestas has an installed capacity of 226 MW in South Korea, accounting for about half of the total wind energy capacity in the country.
