Vestas has secured a 99 MW wind turbine order in China from longtime customer China Datang Corporation Renewable Power Co. Ltd.
The contract includes 45 V110-2.0 MW turbines delivered with a power-optimized mode of 2.2 MW. Delivery and commissioning are expected to begin in the fourth quarter of this year.
The firm and unconditional order is for the Shandianhe project in the Guyuan County of northern China’s Hebei Province. It includes supply of the turbines, supervision of the turbine installation and an Active Output Management 4000 (AOM4000) service contract. The order also includes VestasOnline Business, Vestas’ SCADA system for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance.
Since delivering its first turbine to Datang more than a decade ago, Vestas has installed around 900 MW for the Chinese power generation company.
“Datang is a long-term customer, and the Shandianhe project is another example of our strong partnership and the great business case our wind energy solutions offer in China,” comments Kebao Yang, president of Vestas China. He adds that the company’s Chinese order intake is now nearly 600 MW in 2017.
Vestas says it pioneered the Chinese wind market in 1986 and has since installed more than 5.2 GW of wind turbines in the country.
