Danish turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) has booked an equipment order for the 42-MW Langnabba wind farm project in Finland.
The project is the property of Finland-based developer and independent power producer Vind AX AB, which plans to build the Langnabba wind farm on the Aland Islands located in the Baltic Sea.
The order includes the supply of ten units of V136-4.2 MW turbines with 112 metre towers and a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. The service agreement was closed through local provider Allwinds AB to support job creation on the Aland Islands, Vestas said.
As part of the project, Vestas has designed a customised power plant solution to enable a reliable connection between the wind farm and the grid.
The company expects to start delivering turbines in the third quarter of 2021, while commissioning is planned for the first quarter of 2022.
Once in operation, the Langnabba wind farm will generate more than 130 GWh per year, which will be enough to serve around 10,000 households on the Aland Islands.
