Vestas has received an order from Fred. Olsen Renewables to supply a Swedish wind power project. Located in Vasterbotten, the Fabodliden project will have a total capacity of 79.2 MW.
The contract covers the supply, installation and commissioning of 24 V112-3.3 MW turbines including the Vestas De-icing System, along with a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution and a three-year full-scope service agreement.
Turbine delivery is planned to begin in the third quarter of 2015, with commissioning expected in the fourth quarter of that year.
"Today's order with Fred. Olsen Renewables constitutes another milestone for Vestas in the Swedish market. We look forward to the execution phase of the project," says Klaus Steen Mortensen, president of Vestas Northern Europe, who further notes, "The Vestas De-icing System is proving to be a popular option for projects in cold climates."
