Vestas has secured a 99 MW order for two projects in Jiangsu Province in China. Both projects will feature a mixed site configuration consisting of V155-3.3 MW and V110-2.2 MW turbines.

The order includes supply of 16 V155-3.3 MW and 21 V110-2.2 MW turbines as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement.

This is the second order of V155-3.3 MW turbines, Vestas’ latest 4 MW platform variant designed for low wind condition, since its introduction in China in June 2019. The order also features Vestas’ first 20-year service agreement in China, a milestone that showcases how Vestas, by leveraging its industry-leading service capabilities, can optimise life-time performance and improve business case certainty for its customers in the world’s largest wind market.

“The order is significant in two ways, as it demonstrates the V155-3.3 MW turbine’s suitability for China’s low wind market and marks our Chinese customer’s increasing trust in Vestas’ long-term service capabilities and commitment. I believe with the shift of attention to the entire lifecycle of wind farms, more of our Chinese customers will partner with us on long-term service contracts,” Says Thomas Keller, President of Vestas China.

The order takes Vestas’ announced order intake in China to around 550 MW in the first quarter of 2020.

Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2020, while commissioning is planned for the third quarter in the same year.

Vestas has also received an order for a project in China that includes supply of 56 V136-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 Power Optimised Mode as well as a 2-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement.

Deliveries are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2020, with commissioning planned for the same quarter.

The order takes Vestas’ announced order intake in China to 750 MW in the first quarter of 2020.

The projects and customers are undisclosed.
