April 1 (Renewables Now) - Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) announced on Friday it has received orders for 85 MW of wind turbines to be installed at wind farms in Vietnam and Taiwan.
The bigger of the two contracts is for the supply and supervision of 12 V105-3.6 MW wind turbines for the 43-MW Changhua wind park in Taiwan. Installation of the equipment is planned to start in the first quarter of 2020.
The order came from Foxwell Energy, a subsidiary of Foxlink Group, and TCC Green Energy, a subsidiary of TCC Group.
"Working closely with the project owners to understand their requirements and the site constraints of the project, Vestas was able to customise a solution featuring site- and wind-turbine specific towers of 100m and a tailored service package," Vestas explained. Two separate service contracts have been agreed for Changhua – a 20-year Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 service agreement and a 5-year AOM 4000 service agreement. Vestas' SCADA solution is included in both.
The Vietnamese contract comes from an undisclosed foreign investor and concerns the supply and installation of 10 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines, totaling 42 MW, as well as a 10-year AOM 5000 energy-based service agreement. Delivery is expected to start in the fourth quarter of 2019.
