Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) said today it has secured a firm and unconditional order to supply turbines for a 54-MW wind farm in Norway.
The Danish wind turbine maker received the order from Swiss utility BKW Energie AG. Under the contract, it will supply, install and commission 15 units of its V136-3.6 MW turbines at the wind park, which is located in Marker, southeastern Norway. Vestas expects to start delivering the turbines in the third quarter of 2018.
The company noted that BKW Energie is already active in Norway with a large stake in the 1-GW Fosen Vind project. Vestas was awarded a contract to supply the turbines for this project last year.
Fosen Vind is owned by Norwegian state-owned utility Statkraft AS with 52.1%, TroenderEnergi with 7.9% and Nordic Wind Power DA with 40%. The latter is a European investor consortium formed by Credit Suisse Energy Infrastructure Partners and backed by BKW.
