Vestas has received a 40 MW order for a distributed wind project in China that includes the supply of 12 V155-3.3 MW wind turbines, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement.
The turbine combines low sound power rates with a full-scale converter which makes it highly suitable for China’s increasing number of distributed wind energy projects.
Distributed wind refers to China’s decentralized power grid network, whereby local power grids are linked to highly populated regions on a smaller scale.
“The V155-3.3 MW turbine, in combination with a long-term service agreement proves to be a strong solution for distributed wind projects in China, as it boosts energy production while improving the performance certainty over a wind park’s lifecycle. This amounts to a competitive business case for our customer.”Thomas Keller, president of Vestas China.
Deliveries are expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2020, with commissioning planned for the same quarter.
The project and customer names are undisclosed.
