September 5 (Renewables Now) - BayWa re renewable energy GmbH of Germany will equip a 95-MW wind farm in Sweden with turbines by Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS), the Danish manufacturer announced today.

The order is for the Lyngsasa wind project in Kronoberg County, which the unit of German diversified group BayWa AG (ETR:BYW6) will build for Swiss sustainable infrastructure investor SUSI Partners AG. As announced earlier on Thursday, BayWa re has sold the particular project to SUSI and will act as an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor. It will also operate and maintain the plant following completion.

Under the deal, Vestas will supply, install and commission 22 units of its V150-4.2 MW turbines in a 4.3-MW power optimised mode, suitable for the “site-specific requirements.” It expects deliveries of the equipment to be made in the first quarter of 2021, while the wind farm will be brought online in the following quarter.

The contract also includes a 25-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service agreement, as well as the VestasOnline Business SCADA solution.
