In collaboration with Global Power Generation, a subsidiary of Naturgy Group, Vestas has secured a 328 MW deal for two wind projects in Victoria, Australia.
The order includes the supply and installation of 52 V136-4.2 MW wind turbines for the Ryan Corner wind farm, as well as the engineering, procurement and construction of 26 V136-4.2 MW wind turbines for the second phase of the Berrybank wind farm.
Upon completion, Vestas will enter into a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM5000) service agreement for both projects. With a guarantee of energy-based supply, service agreements would optimize energy efficiency and provide long-term business case certainty for Global Power Generation.
