News release from Northern & Central Europe
Hamburg, 29 June 2022
Vestas has received a new 135 MW order from Ilmatar Energy Oy for four projects in Finland. This order marks the next cooperation with Ilmatar Energy, a long-term client, after a 221 MW order in June last year for another Finnish wind farm.
The order includes the supply, installation, and commissioning of V162-6.2 MW and V150-4.2 MW wind turbines, delivered in various operating modes, for the four projects. It also features a 35-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement for the three EnVentus projects, as well as one 30-year AOM 5000 for the fourth project site.
“We are delighted to build on our partnership with Ilmatar Energy, underlying the shared vision for a sustainable future,” said Juan Furones, Vice President for Vestas Sales North & West. “After having delivered several successful projects to Ilmatar Energy, they entrust us once again with a major order, including long-term service agreements, designed to ensure optimised performance of the assets. The four projects together will add another 135 MW of clean energy to the Finnish energy mix, supporting the country’s ambition towards a greener future.”
“We are happy to continue our collaboration with Vestas with this 135 MW project portfolio. The order plays a significant role in our strategy to become one of the leading Independent Power Producers in the Nordics” says Juha Sarsama, CEO of Ilmatar Energy Oy. “Vestas has once again shown their excellent commitment and professionalism, which is extremely important in this kind of complex portfolio structure” says Antti Lehtinen, Head of Turbine Technology at Ilmatar Energy Oy.
Deliveries and installation at the four sites are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2023, while commissioning is planned for the third quarter of 2023.
