Swedish wind developer Eolus Vind AB (STO:EOLU-B) said today it has purchased 79 MW of turbines from Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) for the Jenasen project in northern Sweden.
Vestas has received an order for 23 units of its V126 systems, each with a total height of 190 metres (623.4 ft) and a capacity of 3.45 MW. They will be installed at the project site in the municipality of Sundsvall.
The Danish firm has also won a five-year full service contract for the particular wind park.
Eolus Vind signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) for that project in late 2015. Over the 10-year duration of the off-take contract, Google will buy all of the plant’s output plus the associated Guarantees of Origin (GoOs).
Earlier this month, the Swedish project developer said it had signed a deal with E.on Elnat to connect to the grid 84 MW of wind power capacity in the municipality of Sundsvall. This allows for a future expansion, it noted.
The Jenasen wind farm is expected to start operations in the spring of 2018.
