Vestas has secured an agreement with Vena Energy to service its 54 MW Gamesa turbines at Pililla wind project in Philippines.
The agreement is the first full-scope multi-brand service deal for Vestas in the world, leveraging its expertise in servicing 3.6 GW Gamesa turbines globally, including Taiwan in the Asia Pacific region.
The Pililla wind project was commissioned in 2015. It is located 50 kilometers east of the capital city of Manila and comprises 27 Gamesa G90-2.0 MW turbines.
Under the agreement, Vestas will begin a 5-year service agreement for Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000), designed to optimize the energy production of the wind farm.
The agreement would provide Vena Energy with increased certainty of return on its investment in wind assets with a yield-based availability guarantee for turbines and services for balance of plant properties.
“This agreement highlights our commitment to the long-term asset life extension of our projects and ensures that the Pililla Wind Project continues to contribute to the livelihood of our host communities, while enhancing the efficiency and profitability of our project in the Philippines.”Samrinder Nehria, head of Vena Energy Philippines.
“Vena Energy is a trusted partner and we look forward to helping them achieve the best possible return on investment from their Gamesa fleet. This agreement marks a further expansion of our service portfolio in the Asia Pacific region and continues to show why Vestas is the leading fleet-wide service partner in the wind energy industry.”Clive Turton, president of Vestas Asia Pacific region.
