Vestas has secured another order in Poland which will see it supplying the Elblag (Krasin) wind project with V110-2.0MW turbines.
The project developed by KGAL Investment Management in northern Poland will comprise 16 V110-2.0MW turbines deployed in 2.2MW Power Optimized Mode with 120 meter towers in combination with a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
This site-specific solution will reduce the levelized energy costs while maximizing the project’s power production at the same time.
“This order emphasizes our long-standing relationship with Vestas and will expand the Vestas turbine fleet in our managed portfolio to over 480 MW. The long-term service agreement adds additional security and stability to the project’s expected revenue streams which are hedged by the auction award. With this project we are expanding in Poland and complement KGAL’s renewables portfolio in nine other European countries.”Michael Ebner, managing director of KGAL Investment Management.
“Helping our customers to win more than 900 MW during the first two auction rounds in Poland, this order from our valued customer KGAL Asset Management underlines our ability to support our customers’ success in auctions while creating maximum return for their investment in wind.”Nils de Baar, president of Vestas Northern and Central Europe.
The project will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution which will reduce the downtime of turbines and thus optimize energy output. The contract further includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines.
Deliveries are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2020, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of 2021.
