Danish wind turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) said today it has received a 22-MW firm and unconditional order from Dutch energy supplier Eneco.
The order, secured after a competitive tender process, is for the supply and commissioning of six V112-3.45 MW turbines in 3.6 MW power optimised mode. The machines will be installed the Slufterdam wind park near Rotterdam, with delivery and commissioning slated for the second half of 2018. The contract also includes a full-scope service agreement.
In June 2017, Dutch energy company Nuon Energy, part of Sweden's Vattenfall AB, ordered 28 MW of Vestas turbines, the V112-3.45 MW in 3.6 MW power optimised mode, also for the Slufterdam wind park, Vestas said.
The 50-MW wind park is a joint project between Nuоn Energy and Eneco, both long-term Vestas customers. The Danish manufacturer said its winning tender offer to supply all turbines for the facility is part of the EU-tendering procedure carried out by the two Dutch companies.
