Vestas has expanded its presence in Japan with a 43 MW order for the Yokohama-machi Wind Power Plant in the Japanese prefecture of Aomori.
The plant, which is owned by Japan Wind Development, will include nine Vestas V117-3.45 MW turbines and three Vestas V105-3.45 MW turbines with 94-meter towers. The turbines are delivered in 3.6 MW operating mode.
The order provides a multi-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM5000) service arrangement, which provides the consumer with an energy-based availability assurance to ensure optimal efficiency and long-term business case certainty.
“We are pleased to once again partner with Japan Wind Development with this order. We remain committed to contributing to Japan’s carbon neutrality goal, by continuous collaboration with customers like Japan Wind Development and also providing them with competitive solutions.”Purvin Patel, Vestas Asia Pacific President.
