Vestas in 50mw China win
Long-term Vestas customer Hanas Group has placed an order for 25 V110-2.0 MW turbines for a wind park in Western China. Turbine delivery and commissioning are expected in the second half of 2016.
The order for the Wanglejing Sunjialou Wind Farm in western China’s Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region includes a two-year Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 service contract in which Vestas guarantees a defined level of availability and performance.
The agreement also includes a SCADA VestasOnline Business for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance.
“We are pleased to place another order with Vestas and increase our portfolio of the company’s turbines to almost 1 GW,” saidMa Fuqiang, President of Hanas Group. “Throughout our cooperation, Vestas has proven its ability to deliver a low lifetime cost of energy, and we look forward to the Wanglejing Sunjialou wind park doing the same.”
Hanas Group is a well-known clean energy solutions provider committed to China’s energy structure transformation. The cooperation between Vestas and Hanas started in 2011. In October 2015, the two parties signed a cooperation agreement that reiterated their common goal to reinforce mutually beneficial collaboration in the years to come.
“Hanas Group’s order of close to 1 GW of Vestas turbines reaffirms our companies’ shared priority to deliver highly competitive wind energy solutions,” shared Chris Beaufait, President of Vestas Asia Pacific and China. “Vestas is firmly on track in China, and we are confident that our ability to drive down the cost of energy will position us well as the Chinese market increasingly focuses on lifetime costs.”
