July 6 (Renewables Now) - Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) today confirmed a supply contract awarded by TuuliWatti Oy for its 21-MW Viinamaki wind project in Finland.

Vestas said in a statement that in addition to delivering five units of its V150-4.2 MW turbines for this project, it will also provide a solution featuring the company’s Cable Stayed Tower technology. Thus, the project could help the Danish firm achieve product certification for the Cable Stayed Towers.

Overall, the contract covers the supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, the research and development (R&D) collaboration, a 10-year testing agreement as well as an Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service deal beyond 25 years.

TuuliWatti made a final investment decision on the particular wind project in May. Delivery of the turbines is scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2019.
