September 17 (Renewables Now) - Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) has received an order to supply 34 MW of turbines for the Haramsfjellet wind farm project in western Norway.

The order for eight units of V136-4.2-MW machines was placed by Finnish renewable energy developer Taaleri Energia Ltd, which recently announced it had acquired the project through its Taaleri SolarWind II fund.

The proposed wind farm will be located on the island of Haramsoya on Norway’s western coastline. Vestas will deliver, install and commission the turbines, as well as service the wind farm under a 27-year contract.

Delivery is planned for the next year’s second quarter, followed by commissioning in the fourth quarter of 2020, the Danish wind turbine maker said.
