Vestas has secured an order from CPC Germania for the subsidy-free Lakiakangas II wind park in Finland.
Located in Isojoki in the Southern Ostrobothnia region of Finland, the 50 MW project will feature turbines tailored to the site’s specific wind conditions: 12 V150-4.2 MW turbines with a 135-meter hub height. CPC Germania has signed a long-term power purchase agreement with a third party.
“We are extremely satisfied to continue our partnership with Vestas in Finland. The chosen turbine type V150-4.2 MW represents one of the latest and most efficient wind turbines in the current market today, hence allowing us to operate the wind farm in Isojoki completely market-based without any state subsidies,” says Erik Trast, managing director of CPC Finland.
“This project demonstrates Vestas’ ability to deploy our most advanced technology and leverage our experience to develop a solution that allows us to offer a subsidy-free investment for our customer,” says Nils de Baar, president of Vestas for northern and central Europe. “We are very pleased to further strengthen our partnership with CPC Germania, a key customer in our global footprint.”
The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 service agreement. The project will also feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution to lower turbine downtime and optimize energy output. Turbine delivery is scheduled for the first half of 2019.
