Vestas has received a 21 MW order in Korea from a new customer, Serveone Co. Ltd.
The firm and unconditional order comprises six V126-3.45 MW turbines, which will be used for Serveone’s first wind project.
Located on Jaeun Island in South Korea’s Jeonnam province, the project will also be the first project in South Korea with V126-3.45 MW turbines. In turn, South Korea will represent the 18th market with a firm order intake for the V126-3.45 MW turbine.
The order includes supply and supervision of installation, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 4000 service contract. It also includes the SCADA VestasOnline Business system for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance. Vestas expects delivery of the turbines to start by the end of the year.
“Vestas has been present in South Korea for more than 20 years, and we are proud of our contribution to the Korean government’s goal of reducing carbon emissions through reliable, clean power,” says Clive Turton, president of Vestas Asia Pacific.
Vestas says it installed South Korea’s first commercial-size turbine in 1995 and has installed around 275 MW in total since then.
