Vestas to supply 39 MW turbines for expansion of Uruguay's Carape wind park
Dec 30, 2013 - Danish wind turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) will supply 13 Vestas V112-3.0 MW wind turbines to Vengano S.A. for the expansion of the Carape wind power plant in Uruguay.
The wind turbines are scheduled to be delivered as of the third quarter of 2014 and commissioned by the first quarter of 2015.
In September 2013, Fingano S.A. signed a contract for the first 50 MW order for the Carape wind power plant and now Vengano S.A., owned by the same shareholders as Fingano S.A., has signed a contract for the enlargement of Carape. Once installed, the wind park will have an estimated annual production of more than 440,000 MWh, generating green electricity for 400,000 people in Uruguay, equal to about one third of the population of the city of Montevideo.
The 39 MW contract comprises delivery, installation and commissioning of the turbines, a VestasOnline Business SCADA system as well as a 17-year service agreement (AOM 4000), which guarantees turbine availability.
