Vestas has received a 56 MW order for the Banie lV project from Energix, the wind farm’s majority owner and wind project developer in Poland.
The contract covers the supply, construction, and commissioning of 16 V126-3.45 MW wind turbines with a 3.5 MW operating mode, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM5000) service arrangement.
