Vestas has received a 56 MW order for a wind project in France. The contract includes the supply and installation of 18 wind turbines of the 4 MW platform including V136-3.45 MW, V126-3.45 MW and V117-3.45 MW turbines delivered in various power optimised modes as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

The mixed platform site configuration in combination with a service agreement demonstrates both the flexibility of Vestas’ 4 MW platform turbines, as well as Vestas’ ability to create customised site layouts to optimise the energy production.

Turbine delivery and commissioning are scheduled for the second half of 2022. The project and customer are undisclosed.

Vestas installed its first turbine in France in 1991. Since then, the company has led the country’s wind industry with over 6.1 GW of wind capacity installed and over 2,600 wind turbines. These numbers position the company as the main contributor to the expansion of wind energy in France, with a 30% accumulative market share.
