December 29 (Renewables Now) - Danish wind turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) has entered into a partnership agreement with W.E.B that could lead to orders for a three-digit volume over the next two years.
As part of the partnership, Vestas will be supplying turbines from its 4-MW platform for future projects in Germany, Austria, Italy, France, Canada and the US, it said on Wednesday. W.E.B has already placed orders for 35 MW of turbines that will be installed as part of one German and one Austrian project.
The German order calls for the supply and commissioning of six V136-3.6 MW units for the repowering of the Woerbzig wind park in the eastern part of the country, currently consisting of 12 V66-1.75 MW units. That order was awarded in the second German auction round in August 2017 and includes a 20-year full-scope Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement and a VestasOnline Compact SCADA solution.
As per the Austrian order, it concerns the Duernkrut project in Lower Austria. W.E.B has purchased four V126-3.45 MW turbines and again added a full-scope AOM 4000 service contract and a VestasOnline Compact SCADA solution.
Vestas expects to deliver the turbines for the Austrian scheme in the second half of 2018 and those for the German project in the first half of 2019.
