April 1 (Renewables Now) - Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) on Tuesday said it has secured 301 MW of turbine orders for three projects in China.
Under the larger deal, totalling 202 MW, the Danish wind turbine maker will supply 56 units of its V136-3.45 MW machines in a 3.6-MW power optimised mode for an unspecified project in the Asian country. It will also service the turbines for two years, as part of an Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) contract. The name of the customer and its project were not disclosed upon the client’s request.
Vestas expects to start delivering the equipment in the third quarter of this year. The power plant will go online in the same quarter, as well.
The manufacturer has also bagged a deal to equip two wind parks in China’s Jiangsu province with a combined capacity of 99 MW. This order also came from an unspecified customer who preferred not to provide the names and specific details about the projects. Both of them will use a mix of Vestas’ V155-3.3 MW and V110-2.2 MW turbines, which the Danish firm will service under its first 20-year service agreement in China.
A total of 16 V155-3.3 MW and 21 V110-2.2 MW machines will be used for the two sites, with deliveries planned to start in the second quarter of 2020. The wind farms are slated for commissioning in the following quarter.
Following the latest deals, Vestas’ announced order intake in China in the first quarter of 2020 came at 750 MW.
