Vestas has secured a 38 MW project in the UK that will be constructed in the southwestern part of Scotland. The wind park will feature a customised Vestas solution, including nine V117-4.2 MW turbines with 81.5-metre towers to maximise energy production in the site’s medium to high wind conditions while meeting the tip height requirements.

“This project enables a highly competitive business case for our customer and offers the lowest cost of energy to the British energy consumers. It marks another step forward for renewable energy in the UK”, states Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe.

Turbine deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2021, while commissioning is planned for the third quarter of 2021.

The project and customer are undisclosed.
