Vestas lands 50MW treble in Taiwan
Vestas has secured a 50MW order with German developer WPD for three onshore wind projects in Taiwan.
The Danish manufacturer will supply the Hsinyuan wind farm with six V136-4.2 MW turbines with 112-metre towers.
The Chuangwei 2 and Leadway 2 wind farms will be installed with four and two V117-4.2 MW turbines with 91.5-metre towers, respectively.
Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2022, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of the same year.
The order includes a long-term Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement for the wind farms.
“We are pleased to extend our long-term partnership with our global key account, WPD in Taiwan,” said Purvin Patel, Vestas Asia Pacific chief executive.
“We would like to thank wpd for entrusting Vestas with these projects and strengthening our working relationship in this region. We remain committed to developing the wind industry in Taiwan and driving the adoption of renewable energy in the region”.
WPD chief operating officer Achim Berge Olsen added: “The current supply order to Vestas initiates the next phase of our growth strategy in Asia, where we aim to further expand our strong position in the Taiwanese wind energy market and accelerate our developments in other Asian markets.”
