Vestas has received an order for 15 V112-3.3 MW turbines for the 49.5 MW Larimar wind power plant in Enriquillo, Dominican Republic.
This is the second order in Latin America that Vestas has received from Spain-based Grupo Cobra since September.
‘We are delighted to have strengthened our partnership with Vestas through this new deal,’ says Pedro Cuevas, executive director at Grupo Cobra. "We expect the Larimar wind power plant to take wind energy a step further in this country, and we are convinced that Vestas' contribution in offering the best-in-class energy solutions will pave the way for more projects to come."
The 15 wind turbines for this supply-only contract are expected to be delivered in the second quarter of 2015 and commissioned by the first quarter of 2016.
Vestas notes that it installed the Dominican Republic's first large-scale wind power plant, Juancho Los Cocos, in 2011 and says this new order will help the company maintain its position in country.
