December 28 (Renewables Now) - Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) today announced orders for almost 190 MW of wind turbines to be installed at wind farms in Ukraine and Poland next year.
Under an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract awarded by DTEK Renewables, the Danish wind turbine maker will supply turbines with a total capacity of 99 MW from its 4 MW platform for the Orlovka wind project in the Zaporizhia region of Ukraine. The machines will be delivered in 3.8 MW power optimised mode. The contract also includes a 20-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreement.
Delivery of the turbines for Orlovka is to start in early 2019. Commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter.
The Polish contract, for 88 MW in total, comes from state utility PGE for two projects successful in the November energy auction. Vestas will equip the 22-MW Karnice II wind park with 10 pieces of V110-2.2 MW turbines, and it will also supply 33 machines of the V100-2.0 MW for the 66-MW Starza Rybice project. The order includes an AOM 4000 service contract.
Delivery of turbines for the projects in Poland is expected to commence in the third quarter of 2019, with commissioning again planned for the closing quarter of the year.
