Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order from GS Power, a subsidiary of South Korean conglomerate GS Group, for six V112-3.3 MW turbines for the Yaksoo wind park.
According to Vestas, the park is the first wind energy project for GS Power and will be located in South Korea's southwestern Jeonnam Province.
The project includes Vestas' 16-year Active Output Management 4000 service contract and a SCADA VestasOnline Business for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance.
Delivery and commissioning are expected during the second half of 2016. Vestas will be responsible for the supply of the wind turbines, totaling 20 MW, and supervision of the installation.
South Korea introduced a renewable portfolio standard in 2012 to boost the development of renewable energy and, among other things, require power generation companies to produce a certain ratio of electricity from renewable energy sources. Vestas has an installed capacity of 225 MW in South Korea – accounting for about half of the total wind energy capacity in the country.
