November 20 (Renewables Now) - Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) has secured an order to supply 48 MW of turbines for the expansion of the 52-MW Astana I onshore wind farm in Kazakhstan.
For the second phase of the Astana project, the Danish manufacturer said it will supply 14 units of V117-3.45 MW wind turbines, designed to withstand tough wind conditions and dry continental climate with extreme temperature fluctuations at the site in Western Kazakhstan.
Kazakh developer TSATEK Green Energy LLP awarded the contract to Vestas on the back of their previous cooperation on the 52-MW first phase of the Astana wind project.
The deal includes the supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, a ten-year service agreement and the VestasOnline Business SCADA solution.
Vestas expects to start turbine deliveries during the second quarter of 2020.
