Vestas wins 76 MW order in Sweden
“Working with Vestas on the Lyrestad wind park feels like a secure and natural choice. Vestas’ support and flexibility during the development of the project, the performance of the V126-3.45 MW turbine, and the optimal service package are the main reasons behind our decision to once again rely on Vestas as our turbine and service supplier”, says Peter Bjelkengren, Purchasing and Construction Manager at Rabbalshede Kraft.
Klaus Steen Mortensen, President at Vestas Northern Europe, adds that “It is a great pleasure for Vestas to be part of this project, where we once again prove our ability to deliver a strong business case for investments in wind energy. Whether companies look to power their own operations, reduce supply risk and price volatility, or contribute to combatting climate change, investing in wind energy simply makes economic sense”.
The order includes supply, installation, and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 10-year Active Output Management service agreement (AOM5000). Turbine delivery is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2017, with commissioning expected to start in the third quarter of 2017.
