Vestas to supply 27-MW of V112 turbines for Turkish wind farm
Oct 16, 2012 - Danish wind turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) said Tuesday it had secured an order for 27 MW of its V112-3.0 MW machine for a wind project in Turkey.
The project is being developed by a joint venture of local Zaf Group and Tefirom Group.
The Danish company is to deliver the units in the first quarter of 2013 and commission them in the second quarter. The wind turbine supply deal also includes a VestasOnline Business SCADA system and a 10-year active management output (AOM) 4000 service agreement.
Vestas explained that its V112-3.0 MW turbine was tailored for medium to low wind sites and was an ideal match for the Senbuk wind project in Turkey, as space there was limited. Once up and running, the Senbuk wind farm is expected to generate 97,800 MWh of power annually, or as much as 200,000 people consume. The facility is to offset 50,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions.
Through June 2012, Vestas has delivered total of 303 MW of the V112 model globally, and secured firm orders for 3,000 MW, it noted.
