March 26 (Renewables Now) - Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) has won an order to supply turbines for 68 MW of wind farms in Poland, the manufacturer said today.

The contract covers three projects that the unnamed customer secured in the Polish renewables auction in December 2019. Under the deal, Vestas will also install, commission and service the equipment. The delivery of the VestasOnline Business SCADA solution is included, as well.

The so-called 29-MW Ustka project will be powered by 13 units of the V100-2.0 MW turbines delivered in 2.2 MW power optimised modes, which Vestas will service under a 27-year Active Output Management (AOM 4000) agreement. The Danish firm will supply 12 of the same model turbines for the 24-MW Gorzyca plant, while seven V110-2.0 MW machines in a 2.2-MW power optimised mode will be powering the 15-MW Parnowo wind farm. Those will be serviced under a 30-year AOM 4000 contract.

All projects will be located in northern and western Poland.

Vestas expects to start supplying the machines in the first quarter of 2021 with the aim to commission them in the third quarter of the same year.

In January, the Danish manufacturer grabbed an order for 60 MW of turbines for the Janikowo onshore wind farm project in Poland.
