Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) has booked an order to supply 46 MW of turbines for the Oosterscheldekering Wind Optimization project in the Netherlands.
The project will add some new turbines and replace older ones across four wind farms -- Binnenhaven, Roggeplaat-West, Noordland Buiten and Vluchthaven -- located in the Zeeland province, Vestas has said.
The customer, Dutch wind project developer E-Connection, has placed an order for 11 turbines to realise the first phase of the optimisation project.
Vestas’ contract includes the supply of nine pieces of the V136-4.2 MW turbines and two from the V11-4.2 MW model, installation and commissioning, and the 15-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement.
Five V90-3.0 MW turbines will make way for five V136-4.2-MW units at the Noordland Buiten and Vluchthaven sites. The Binnenhaven and Roggeplaat-West wind farms will get the remaining four V136-4.2-MW and the two V117-4.2-MW turbines, respectively.
Turbine deliveries and commissioning are planned to start in the third quarter of 2021.
