The agreement is the company’s first full scope multi-brand service deal in the country, leveraging its extensive experience from servicing 3.6 GW Gamesa turbines globally, including Taiwan in the Asia Pacific region. The Pililla Wind project is located 50 kilometres east of the capital city, Manila and was commissioned in 2015. It comprises 27 Gamesa G90-2.0 MW turbines.
Under the agreement, Vestas will commence a 5-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, designed to maximise the wind farm’s energy production. With a yield-based availability guarantee for turbines and services for balance of plant assets, the agreement will provide Vena Energy with improved certainty of return on its wind asset investment.
“This agreement highlights our commitment to the long-term asset life extension of our projects and ensures that the Pililla Wind Project continues to contribute to the livelihood of our host communities, while enhancing the efficiency and profitability of our project in the Philippines” said Samrinder Nehria, Head of Vena Energy Philippines.
Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific region, added that Vena Energy is a trusted partner and that the agreement marks a further expansion of Vestas service portfolio in the Asia Pacific region. The company currently services more than 8 GW of non-Vestas turbines, comprising a number of major wind turbine brands.
