The Lake Turkana Wind Power (LTWP) project will use total of 365 pieces of V52-850 kW turbines, capable of generating over 1,400 GWh together. Power will be supplied to the grid through a 428-km publicly owned transmission line, which has been under construction for several years now.
Vestas said in the autumn of 2015 that it would sell its 12.5% stake in the project to Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) once the whole park is fully built. Completion is planned for 2017.
Vestas reported on Thursday a first-quarter (Q1) order intake of 2,403 MW.
